Penny Black Saturday and Forever Friends DT

This is my card for the Penny Black Saturday challenge this weeks challenge was called 'blooming gorgeous' and this is my take on the theme....

I coloured this sweet image with promarkers and the flowers and card candy were from craft work cards, papers and felt trim from my stash.

This is my DT peice for Forever Friends this week was my challenge and the theme is 'Citrus Twist....use citrus colours on your entry'

I could'nt get the image of pink grapefruit out of my head once I named my challenge so I thought it best to go with it.....I used basic grey papers for the background and stamped my FF image on to green papermania white core card stock added the huge very 'lime' green flower and a circle of the same backing paper to mount my image......... a bit of paper peicing and edge inking and voila..

Thanks for taking the time to stop by...

( with promarkers ) the flowers were part of my birthday pressie from my bestest friend Kirsten (thanks hun) and the ticket was originally a tan colour so I gave it a promarker make over and was quite pleased with the result!!
