Penny Black Challenge


It's all about ribbons today at Penny Black Challenge.

Great I thought I love my ribbons but you know when you get one of those days when you start a card full of enthusiasm then everything goes wrong well this was one of those days, I had about four attempts at papers scrunched up a few in disgust!! the phone kept ringing then Peaches was sick on the carpet (sorry LOL for the image!!) SO I had another stab at it - ended up with about four die cut rectangles wasn't happy with them tried circles - Och! it just goes on and on so here is the end result of my total debacle, but I'm just not happy with it at all - never mind c'est la vie!!! Did manage to make my hat pin though!!

Dawn, are you mad? What's there not to like? The background matches with the lace, the teddy's box matches with the ribbon, the ribbon under the box matches as well (notice ribbon comes into it twice, matching with the theme, and the hat pin draws the eye to - You've guessed it - A Ribbon.

Put it away and look at it again in an hour. I guarantee you will love it!
