Penny Black Challenge #43 - Easter

Hi everyone, and welcome to week 43 of the Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Thanks so much to all of you who entered last week - spring has now definitely sprung! ... and the weather has actually been a bit kinder for most of this week, although there's a bit of a nip in the air again today methinks!

Having started to get into the mood for spring, this week's challenge should hopefully take it up a level as the theme is


... so it's time to get out all those cute bunnies, chicks, images with eggs or anything else that you feel adequately sums up the season.

This week we have another fab prize for you that our wonderful DT member Jacqui has kindly donated - this brilliant transparent set of numbers.

So here's my card. I've seen this image on a few people's cards and adored it so much I just HAD to buy it last Saturday ... so of course I had to use it today!

I used:
Main image: Penny Black "Bunny Friends" coloured wtih watercoloru pencils and decorated with pearl gems;
Sentiment: Penny Black "Happy Easter";
Papers: My Mind's Eye, punched with Martha Stewart doily lace punch; pearlescent cardstock from papermania "Gemstones" pack;
Supplies: Prima flowers; Papermania pearl brad; Anita's ribbon; leaves punched with Leone Em Ash Branch punch; zoomz from my stash.

Hope you all have a fun weekend! ... and don't foget to take a look at the challenge blog to find out last week's winner and to see all the gorgeous cards from the DT who have been as busy as ... well ... bunnies !!

  17. Hi Pauline - thank you for your kind comments on my blog. I do love Penny Black stamps with a passion and am particularly addicted to the mice and the hedgehogs - hence the reason that I don't have any rabbits or chicks (but no doubt this will change with time).

    If there are ever any images on my blog that you would like then please just let me know. I would be happy to send you some.

    Thanks again. Love Jules xx
