Penny Black Saturday Challenge #22 - Sentiment Only

I would like to start by saying how overwhelmed and excited I am to be asked to join the Penny Black Saturday Challenge DT - it is a group of fantastic ladies with brilliant cardmaking talents, so it's a lot to live up to ... so many thanks to Tracie for inviting me. Hope you will pop over to the challenge blog and look at all the other fab card made by the DT for this week.

I would also love to thank everyone who joined in last week's challenge - it was great fun and very inspiring going round looking at everyone's fab creations; and also lovely to see your welcoming messages.

So ... down to business with this week's challenge, which is ....

Sentiment Only

We would like you to use a Penny Black sentiment stamp on your project, with no images allowed - either Penny Black or any other make. The good news is that this gives you opportunity to really go to town with any other form of decoration such as papers, ribbons, embellishments, stitching, die cuts etc.... we really look forward to seeing your creations.

We have a really great prize on offer this week .... Tracie is donating this gorgeous PB sentiment stamp which is perfect for all those Christmas cards!


So here is my card ....



I used: PB stamp ".. Be My Friend" embossed with silver detail powder; papers from my stash (most didn't have a make printed on them); lilac pearlescent card embossed with Cuttlebug "Perfectly Paisley" embossing folder; cream lace from Hobbycraft; Prima & WH Smith flowers; Papermania green pearl brad; buttons, narrow ribbon and metallic dragonfly brads from my stash. I also tried a bit of faux stitching on the papers to add a bit of interest.
