Penny Black Saturday Challenge.......

It has been so nice to get in my craft room this afternoon and make a card just because I could!!!
I have been so busy with card orders and cards for the shop that I forgot how nice it is to just chill and relax....
Ian is at cricket and Jack and a friend are playing in the garden so its all quiet here.......can you hear that ........yep not a dickibird!

I have made this card for this weeks PBSC which is the most fabulous sketch.... 
The frame is a chipboard shape that I covered in basic grey paper and the flowers were cut from scraps of paper I used for the background I then embossed the reverse of each flower with my ball tool and layered them up with a flower embelishment to finish, the sentiment stamp was a freebie in a magazine i inked it up with two inks brown and black so it wasnt as harsh, if you click on the pic you might me able to see what I mean.... lastly the image is a stickeroo although Jack has just been in and said 'wow! love the colouring mum' he got very close when I told him it was a stickeroo lol.....

Right I think i'm off to find another challenge so I might be back.........

hugs..

Hi Emma

This is gorgeous.

I love the colours you have worked with and the way you have used the sketch. Beautiful results.

Can't believe you can have two kids playing in the garden and it be quiet!!! That always used to send out alarm bells in our house "they are too quiet .. .. what are they doing!!" LOL!!!

Enjoy your Sunday.

Love Jules xx
