Penny Black Challenge #37 - Get Well Soon

Hello again ... welcome to the weekend, and the latest Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Already we are at week 37 - where does the time fly? As ever the DT would like to thank everyone for their amazing response to Nat's fabulous sketch challenge last week - don't forget to look out for the prizewinner.

This week's challenge is Get Well Soon - your chance to send a hug to a loved one who is under the weather. As always you may interpret this any way so long as you include one or more PB stamps or stickeroos in your design.
We have another amazing prize kindly donated by Carole - a selection of fab buttons and ribbons to jazz up one lucky winner's future creations.

I thought I would interpret this as sending a bouquet of good wishes to someone , and that I would make the card in cheerful and spring like colours.

I inked up one of the cuties from the PB "Hugs!" set for the first time, and also used some cheerful spring papers that came free with the first issue of a new craft magazine - Creative Cardmaking. I don't normally go much on the free papers in craft mags, but I liked these sufficiently that Iactually bought the mag because of it!

I am still decorating the insides and am loving using my new personalised stamps on the back - I particularly like this one as I can colour the 3 flowers to match the colour scheme of the card.


I used:
Main image: Penny Black transparent set "Hugs!" coloured with watercolour pencils & decorated with Stickles.
Sentiments: "For You" by studio g clear stamps; "A Bouquet ..." by Hero Arts; "Hugs & Kisses.." (inside) by Inca.
Papers (inc. printed disc): free with issue 1 of Creative Cardmaking magazine.
Supplies: flower by WH Smith; brad by Doodlebug sugar coated; charm from Dolls Made Up. Leaves punched using Leone Em Ash branch punch.

Hope you all have a great weekend.
