Penny Black Challenge - Week 30

Time for another challenge card and this time it is one of my favourites, the Penny Black Saturday Challenge. I am fast building up a collection of these stamps and this is my latest Penny Black purchase called "Crossing Bridges". I coloured the image using my trusty Promarkers.

For this card I used the new Papermania papers called "Scrumptious" which are absolutely lovely, and pink my favourite colour. I added some glossy accents to the flowers on the image. The flowers are Prima with a Dovecraft jewel brad in the centre. The pearl adhesive stones are by Kars. I also added some Liquid Pearls to the corner of the stamped image to look like brads. The papers are matted onto Bazzill Bling. The sentiment is just computer generated on my laptop.

The brief for the card this week is embossing and so I have added a strip of embossed Bazzill Bling which I nearly forgot about so this was added when I had practically all but finished the card. For this I used the Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls folder.

Hope you like the card. Happy Crafting everyone.
