Penny Black Challenge #51 - Sketch by Domi

Hello everyone .. the weekend's here again (yippee!!), so it's time for another Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Thanks for all your gorgeous creations with buttons last week ... don't forget to check out the challenge blog to see who won Tracie's cute baaa lamb stamp!

This week we have a real treat for you, with a fab sketch by Domi. This was brilliant to work with, and the rest of the DT have come up with some amazing samples to inspire you .. hope you will check out their blogs. And to give you a little further incentive, we have another great prize this week ... Dick at PB Stamps is offering a 15% discount voucher to one lucky winner. Here is my card .... whilst out shopping one lunchtime I called into my local craft shop Edwin Allen (like you do) and spotted they had got some BasicGrey "Wisteria" paper pads into stock .. now I had really fancied one but not picked one up yet. Having let it fall into my shopping basket I just had to have a play, so everything else on the card stemmed from that lol!

Here's another view to show (not very successfully!) the sparkle on the flowers.

Main image: PB "Fanfare", heat embossed with detail white powder and then decorated with glamour dust and cut out using oval nesties - I edged the oval with brilliance white pearlescent ink.
Sentiment: Hero Arts.
Paper: BasicGrey "Wisteria".
Supplies: raffia lace from Hobbycraft; flowers by Prima, Papermania and from my stash; brads by Papermania (pearl) and Doodlebug (frosted); spacers from
The Hobby House.

Hope you all have a great weekend (let's hope that summer is really here at last!)
