Penny Black Saturday Challenge


I made this card for this weeks Penny Black Challenge where the theme is Friendship. Thank you Fran for sending me this gorgeous PB image.
I have some very exiting news to share in that Craft Stampers magazine have asked me to do a 2-3 page article so I probably won't be posting much over the next two weeks while I work on my projects. I'll share them with you as soon as I can though.

Hugs,



Card detail:
Image: Penny Black
Medium: Prismacolour, Sansodor & Paper stumps and Sakura stardust pen
Paper: Basic Grey Sugared
Embellishments: Buttons, ribbon and blooms
Other Equipment: Sentiment was printed on my computer.
