Penny Black Challenge #91 - easel card



Woo hoo its Saturday, so it's time again for another Penny Black Saturday Challenge. It was fabulous to see last week's interpretations of Carole's fabulous sketch - don't forget to pop over the the challenge blog to check if you have won last week's prize.

This week we have another great challenge - we would like you to make an

easel card

The only other rule is that you need to use a Penny Black image or sticker somewhere on your creation.

This week we have another great prize from our regular sponsor Clair at



- an SU corner rounder punch.

The DT has been busy making some really gorgeous creations - hope you will pop over to their blogs and check them out. We also have a brilliant new guest designer for March - Nadine - so please do go and say hello!

I really love easel cards as they are so easy to make and give you a bit more "display" area than a standard card .... so I have taken the opportunity to make my mum's Mother's Day card.

I would also like to enter this card for the following challenges:

Simon Says - Mother's Day
C.R.A.F.T. #40 - Mother's Day / Flowers
Totally Papercrafts #6 - Mother's Day / Special Lady
Magical Crafts #9 - Something for Mum
My Time to Craft #81 - Just for Mum
Lili of the Valley #48 - Easel Card
Kaboodle Doodles #25 - Fancy Folds
Stamp Something - Something Girly
Crafty Calendar #6 - Flower Power
Spoon Full of Sugar #93 - beads (hope the little pearl beads on the flower stamens count ... they're all I've got lol!)



Recipe:
Main image: Penny Black "Wind Caressed" (3818J) heat embossed wtih detail gold powder and coloured with Cosmic Shimmer paints;
Sentiments: peel offs and Cuttlebug "Hippie Chick" alphabet lettering;
Papers: BasicGrey "Wisteria";
Supplies: roses from Hobbycraft decorated with stickles; large pearl brads from The Hobby House; floral ribbon and flowers with pearl bead stamens from my stash;

Looking forward to seeing all your creations and have a great weekend :-)
