Three Challenge Card

Hi everyone

You wouldn't believe the fuss in our house this week. The Take That tickets hadn't arrived and the concert's this Saturday. I was getting a bit paranoid because Sarah's tickets are here; she's standing but we have to sit because Jack is too young to go on the pitch area. I can't believe Tickemaster leave it so late. Anyway, they came this morning (I nearly kissed the postman, poor soul) so all's well, I suppose. I am annoyed though because all this stress can be avoided. I even had to make a card to aleviate the anxiety!

This my entry for the Penny Black Birthday Challenge and also for Friday Sketchers Wk 56. I think I can also enter it for the Simon Says Challenge for their birthday. I don't think I've done Friday Sketchers before but I thought this sketch was a lovely one to work with. They've got an archive of past sketches for inspiration so I'm going to have a look.

Card Recipe:
Image: Penny Black
Tiny butterfly: Whiff of Joy
Both images coloured with Water Colour Pencils
Greeting: Pixie Curlz Alphabet Set
Coredinations Cardstock
Kay and Company Brenda Walton Papers: Antique Floral Vines and Emma Floral Pattern

Flowers punched with medium and small daisy punches with paper strips from Craftwork Cards
Brads and antique lace from stash
I used my new fern punch behind the flowers - I can take it off my wish list now although it's not punching very well
Fiskars Daisy Punch (it's supposed to emboss as well but it's rubbish so you can't see it)
Oval Nesties cut in the Cuttlebug

I did a bit to the inside but it's quite plain - I was having a bit of a faff with the Cuttlebug so I kind of gave up in the end.

It's still raining here by the way. Supposed to be drier for a day and then raining again. Bet it pours down on Saturday.

Thanks for looking.
