Penny Black Saturday #107 - Paper Patch

Good morning everyone, and welcome to the latest Penny Black Saturday Challenge. At last we've been getting some summery weather, which seemed to put many of you in the mood for last week's holiday/travel challenge - fab entries as usual. Don't forget to have a peek at the main challenge blog to find out if you won last week's prize.

Onto this week's challenge - and we have a technique for you -

Paper Patch

Basically this just means having one or more patches of paper or a patchwork effect on your creation - can't wait to see what you create! Don't forget there is only one golden rule for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge - you must use a PB image, large sentiment or stickeroo as the main focus of your project.

As always we have fabby prizes on offer - yes, you heard that right ...prizes ... cos this week we have TWO from our regular sponsors.

Fantastic Ribbons is offering one lucky randomly drawn winner four rolls of ribbon of their choice ....

Keith very kindly sent a bumper box of ribbons for all the girls on the team and they are gorgeous - we have all used them on this week's cards - so pop over to Fantastic Ribbons where they have a huge collection of beautiful ribbons and great offers...check out the summer sizzlers....multibuy ribbons with every order and you can sign up for the newsletter which will keep you informed about all the special offers and new ribbons coming in stock....but I will not be held responsible if you have no willpower lol!!

... and Dick at PB Stamps is offering a 15% lifetime discount voucher.

So what are you waiting for?? The rest of the DT have got busy making fabulous samples, and here is mine ...

Main image: Penny Black "friends matter" (4073F) inked in brilliance pearlescent ink;
Paper: free with this month's craft magazine;
Supplies: patterned ribbon from
Fantastic Ribbons; flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts; Papermania sparkly dots;
Tools: Martha Stewart "woodland bough" edge punch; Fiskars "Victorian" paper cutting blade.
