Penny Black Challenge 43


I'm so determined to enter a few challenges myself this week, just for a change, and it has been a while since I entered this particular challenge. Here's a little card I made for the Penny Black Easter challenge. I thought I'd use a few pastel shades to make this card. I'll take it up to my Mum when I visit her next weekend.

Ingredients:
Stamps: PB 12 days of Christmas (goose), Laura Ashley Love Song (on backing) and Do Crafts Sentiment.
Paper: Forever Friends.
Ink: Tim Holtz distress ink Milled Lavender. Whispers strokes pen for the doodled corners.
Nesties
Candy hearts, ribbon, bow and flowers from my stash.

Gorgeous card Sharon, I love these pastels and shocked look on the face of the goose ...think I´d look shocked too if I laid eggs that size. Your flowers and ribbon detail are beautiful too. -x-
