Penny Black Saturday....



This week we have to decorate the inside of our cards for Penny Black Challenge, now I don't know but for some reason I usually always just put in the obligatory paper insert, we don't tend to decorate them like they do perhaps in Norway, which I love by the way - it really does add that extra something to your card, maybe it's a time thing.. but I am definitely going to make a concentrated effort to do more with the insides of cards especially for special ones!! Could have gone a bit overboard though - it's so easy to just keep adding a bit here and there so had to reign myself in!!! Thanks PBC for this challenge!

Hi Dawn, what a brilliant card! Love the that gorgeous hedgy you've coloured so beautifully on the front and the inside is stunning! I love the colour and all the wonderful details. I agree with you about decorating the inside, it really does add something special and I never do it, as you say, a time thing. I'll have to make more effort on special cards too. Chris x
