Penny Black Challenge







Wow how quick the weeks are passing - I can't believe it's Saturday already!
Mind you since I stopped working it takes me ages to think what day it is - seriously I think some days I'm in my own little bubble trying to figure out where about in the week I am!!! LOL

Well this week over at PBC patterned paper is BANNED!!! LOL
So this week I did a bit of embossing all over the card with my Serendipity Peace stamp using clear powder - I love the effect on dark card - so shiny!! The corners have been cut at a slant - mmm!! measuring involved here.
My wee mousies are watercoloured as usual!! and layered onto my Nestie rectangles.
I cut a strip of gold shiny card and emossed with my CB Holly folder then added a strip of brown luscious velvet ribbon and did a little bow at the end.
I quickly and I mean "quickly" made a hat pin with some beads - the cute little cup charm is from Scrapz and the flowers are Prima - et Voila! not a piece of paper in sight!!!

Another super card, just goes to show that you can manage to produce great cards without patterned paper, but would we want to? No, I don't think so, but it's good to have a challenge on ideas. Well done! Ikki
