Penny Black Challenge #49 - Recipe 3-2-1!

Good afternoon everyone - time again for another Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Actually it's rather past the time, because I'm a teeny bit late with my DT card this week - oops sorry! Won't bore you with the various reasons why I didn't get round to it in time, but thank goodness I'm getting caught up with myself now lol! Thanks as always for last week's fantastic entries, and congratulations to the winner of last week's prize :-)

This week we have a recipe for you .... what we would like to see on your creations is

3 flowers, 2 papers and 1 charm/brad

Don't forget that you can make anything you want - so long as it features at least one PB stamp or sticker.

We also have a new sponsor for you this week. Last week I went to Port Sunlight, and managed to meet Wendy from Stamps & Memories.

Stamps & Memories is both a shop and online store, selling a fabulous range of products including lots of stamps (inc. PB's of course) and other goodies including Copic pens and Martha Stewart punches - due soon! Wendy was kind enough to donate this gorgeous stamp as a prize ... "looking at You". How cute is that? (I want it lol!)

Here is my card, featuring a gorgeous image that was a birthday RAK from my lovely friend Debbie.

Image: Penny Black "Birthday Angel" (1130K) coloured with watercolour pencils and dusted with Glamour Dust;
Sentiment: See-D "Celebration messages";
Papers: K&Co "Wild Raspberry" (the papers are double sided; so you can actually see three out of four patterns from 2 papers - one is on the large flower);
Supplies: large flower punched using my new EK Success "Whale of a Punch"; medium flower by Prima; small rose from Hobbycraft; charm from ebay shop Dolls Made Up; lace from Edwin Allen.

I have every intention of decorating the inside of this card, but seeing as I'm so late I thought I'd better get a picture up here!
Hope you all have a great weekend.
