Penny Black Saturday #203 ~ Monochrome Magic....

Morning! I am a bit late posting today......been to B & Q early to get my bedding plants.....Buy 1 get 1 free, so lots of lovely plants for my garden to plant now :)
Anyway back to today's card! This week's challenge over at Penny Black Saturday is ~
'Monochrome Magic'....
We would love to see cards in shades of one colour :)

I have used PB 'Sparklers' again......stamped in black with stickles added to the centres for some sparkle.......I thought it matched the sentiment well!
Finished with the butterflies and gems......a quick card :) It's been too nice to craft this week!!

This week's prize is 4 rolls of gorgeous Bakers Twine from Fantastic Ribbons :)

Hope to see you all join in x

Thanks for looking, enjoy the sunny weekend :)

Penny Black Saturday #202 - Recycle....

Morning! Time for a brand new challenge over at Penny Black Saturday.....
this week we would love to see your creations using something recycled :)

I have used a page from an old (well read) paperback on the shelf......and used it to create a background for the stunning floral stamp from PB called Sundial.
I thought the B & W would work well with the bold yellow :)
I glued down the book pages 1st and embossed the whole mat with a damask embossing folder from Sizzix. The flower is coloured with promarkers and prismas and I have 3-d some petals for more dimension.

We have a lovely prize of essential crafty goodies for one lucky winner from the girls on the DT.....gorgeous flowers, ribbons, pearls and gems :)

I am entering my card in the following challenges ~
PaperTakeWeekly - In the Garden....
I Love Promarkers #117 - Anything Goes....

Looking forward to seeing what you all 'recycle'......thanks for looking xx

Penny Black Saturday #200 ~ Case It - Me!

Morning! It's our regular 'Case It' challenge this week over at Penny Black Saturday!
This month it's my turn to share a card for you all to case :)
Here is the card I chose......
As you can see I cased my own card shape & layout, but changed the theme and colours :)
I have used a cute PB hedgie called 'Buzz in the Air' and one of my favourite colour combos of purple and green. I have 3-d the flower and bees!
The punched corners are a pansy MS punch.
