Penny Black meets Simply Create.

I'm not really at the last minute for the Penny Black challenge LOL! I had a card made last night but left it till today in the hope of getting a better photo. But the weather was against me. It was dull and dismal, then by the time I took the dog out it was really nice. By the time I hung up my washing it was dull again. Then it rained. When I went to work it was still not very nice. During the afternoon it turned really nice and it's still bright now! Unfortunately I ran out of time to post this before work. I knew it was a mistake to do all that housework!

Enough waffle though. I loved using that sketch over at the Penny Black challenge that I made another very similar card. Jacqui at Simply Create at Alford (not my local craft shop but not too far away) is looking for red and white cards to sell for Save the Children and she is offering a prize of £50 to spend in her shop. If you can't get there she will post £50 of goodies to you. 4th September is a special day at her shop and I've arranged a day off so I can go!

This is my card for the challenge over at Penny Black. I stamped the image twice and 3D'd the flower and the bud. I also added some black stickles for some dimension too.

And this is a very similar one as I had another image stamped and it was nice and quick to make another one.

I used:-
Image:- Penny Black from clear set flowers and wishes.
DP :- Basic Grey basics white.
Sentiment and card candy :- Craftwork Cards.
Colouring :- Promarkers and Distress Inks.
Martha Stewart edge punch.
Ribbon, string, flowers, pearls and button from stash.
I'm off to enter the challenge now and do my DT commenting and schedule some posts. And then I need to decide what I'm doing tomorrow at a crop at my local craft shop.
Enjoy the weekend, hope the weather improves!
