Penny Black Saturday Challenge #45 - A Sketch

Oh, my goodness. This is a bit bright, isn't it! I don't think I've made a card as bright as this before - we certainly won't lose this one in the pile. This card is my entry to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge -week 45 - a sketch by Nat. This was a great sketch to follow, I love to use lots of layers.

I bought these papers from Stampaholics in Perth when we visited on Saturday and I was dying to use them. I got the stamps from the Paper Mill shop; they were my bargain (being a canny Scot I've got to have one of those).

I thought there was quite enough going on here without any flowers or ribbons, thanks very much so I just left it quite plain and followed the sketch. I left the inside quite plain as well since the paper is so loud.

Here's the recipe:

Penny Black Garden Friends Clear Stamps
My Minds Eye Bloom and Grow Papers
Orange and Green card from my stash
The sentiment is from the same stamps as is the little butterfly
Distress Inks:
Peeled Paint
Scattered Straw
Spiced Marmalade
Mustard Seed
Tattered Rose

Inside I used the Fiskars Threading Water Punch with the Penny Black ladybird stamp in the corner and a flower from my stash on the other side to finish it off.

Hope you like it.
