Penny Black Card

Sometimes cards come out exactly the way that you plan them and sometimes they don't go according to plan, Thankfully this is one that went well (I think so anyway....)


I have entered this into the following challenges:
  • The Crazy 4 Challenges blog which follows the sketch at "crazy4challenges.blogspot.com"
  • The Penny Black Saturday Challenge at "pennybfriendssaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com"
  • The StampARTic Challenge at "stampartic.blogspot.com/search/label/Challenge" and i choose to enter this card because it just came so well together and I love the papers used.
  • The Papertake Weekly Challenge at "papertakeweekly.blogspot.com"
  • A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge at "spoonfullofsugarchallenge.blogspot.com"
  • A Inky Impressions Challenge at "inkyimpressionschallenges.blogspot.com"
  • The Dutch Dare Challenge at "dutchdare-cardchallenges.blogspot.com"
  • The Simon Stays Stamp Challenge at "simonsaysstampschallenge.blogspot.com"
  • The Whiff Of Joy Challenge at "wojmonday.challenge.blogspot.com"
  • The Stampavie Challenge at "stampwithsarahkay.blogspot.com"
Whew! can you tell I am proud of this card or what!

This card is made with my favourite and new papers The Winter Joy Collection from Bo Bunny the strip down the centre is from the cardstock sticker collection. I couldn't find any circle die cut big enough so I drew around one of my mother's colour wheels which was the perfect size.


The greeting is a rub on from the same collection.

The Penny Black stamp "Snow Trot" is stamped on cream shimmery paper and coloured with Promarkers.


The snowflake embellishment is a sticker from the Winter Joy Collection backed on some purple card from my crafty stash. The pearls are from Papermania.
