Penny Black Challenge - Week #34

Hello all from a very cold, windy and a little bit white Baldock. What a day!! I started off by going to the Stamperama Craft Fair at The Gordon Craig Theatre in Stevenage where I spent more money than I care to remember lol. I bought loads of Penny Black stamps, three of which were in the bargain bucket....don't cha just love bargains. Driving home it started to snow, most of the day it has been trying on and off and then we had a bit of a blizzard and now it has stopped again. I love snow, I wish it would make up its mind. I'm only saying this cos I don't have work tomorrow so no struggling to the train station in the snow.

Anyhoo I have made a card using one of my new bargain PB stamps...I paid £2.50 for this stamp saving £4...I am so pleased with it, I always miss bargains usually.

The brief this week is very exciting, it is to make a round card. Simple you might say but this is the first time I have made one but I think I have done ok.

The elements I used for this card are:-

Penny Black Stamp called "Crush"
Image coloured with Promarkers
Papermania scrumptious papers
Petal Pink and White Opal Liquid Pearls
Prima flower which I have added some sparkle to with a Sakura Stardust pen
Papermania Brad
Ribbon from stash
The heart shape is cut using my new Classic Scalloped Heart Nestabilities

I hope you like the card, please feel free to leave a comment.
