Penny Black Challenge - Week 31

Hello again from a windy Baldock, hasn't the weather changed, yesterday it was trying to snow and now it is windy and it looks like rain. Not sure what I prefer, ice cold or rain. Anyhow, I have managed a card today for the Penny Black Challenge but I am not too sure about the image, the colouring hasn't really turned out quite how I wanted. The brief was to use the colours pink and brown, totally scrummy colours that go so well together. Luckily I have stocked up on some papers last week and these seemed to match the brief perfectly.

The elements I used for this card are:

Image - Penny Black - "Cheesecake Wish"
Image coloured with Promarkers.
Brown Bazzill Bling.
Pink Bazzill Bling.
Papers - Swing n Pink Polka - Waves by Retro Rhythms.
Prima Flowers.
Basic Grey Brads.
Sentiment computer generated.

I hope you like the card. All comments very welcome.
