Penny Black Challenge #60 - Recipe!

Hello again, and welcome to week 60 of the Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Last week as always we had some wonderful entries for the soft and sweet challenge - don't forget to have a look at the PBSC blog to see if you have won last week's fab prize of the transparent stamp set.

This week's challenge is a recipe - yes, what we would like to see on your cards is

3 ribbons, 2 flowers & 1 charm/pin

The rest is up to you ... so long as we can also see a Penny Black stamp or sticker on your creation. The DT have really been cookin' with this recipe, so please do go and check out their blogs for some inspiration.

This week we have another brilliant prize by our sponsor Dick at PB Stamps ... a 15% off voucher to spend in the online shop. And what Penny Black lover wouldn't manage to spend in there - it has the biggest range of PB stamps anywhere!
Anyhow, here is my card. This is the second leaving card I have made in two weeks, and again I have used this darling image of a cute hedgie about to take a walk. I have actually cheated slightly on the recipe as I have used raffia lace threaded with 2 ribbons; but I'm sure when it comes to that level of cheating I will be far from alone lol!

Main image: from Penny Black "Tiny Wishes" transparent set, coloured with watercolour pencils and rose on hat decorated wtih Stickles;
Sentiment: computer generated;
Paper: Bo Bunny "Shabby Princess" collection;
Supplies: pearlised lilac card embossed with Cuttlebug "Floral Fantasy" embossing folder; green leaves cut with Leone Em "Ash Family" punch; raffia lace from Hobbycraft; rose charm from Dolls Made Up; spacers from Craft in Time; Papermania adhesive shimmer dots; flowers (a birthday RAK) and ribbon from my stash.

Have a great weekend!
