Penny Black Saturday #121 - Don't be Square!

Woo hoo! The weekend is here again, and that can only mean one thing ... it's time for another Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Thanks so much for all your beautiful entries for last week's "Indian Summer" challenge - don't forget to check the main challenge blog to see if you have won one of our 3 fabby prizes.

This week we have a theme for you .. and it's

Don't Be Square!

As always you can interpret this however you like so long as you use a Penny Black image, sentiment or stickeroo as the main focus of your project.

The rest of the DT have created some stunning and original shaped cards ... this was actually a bit of a challenge for me as I don't really do unusual shaped card so I just got out my trusty circle nesties and hoped for the best lol!

I found this project quite interesting, as the card is fairly teeny tiny so there wasn't a lot of space to work with. It was rather fun though finding one of my smallest images (this was one of my very early PB stamps and I still think it is really sweet!) , paper with a tiny pattern and dinky embellishments - hope you like it :-)

Main image: Penny Black "A Tender Hug" (3614F) coloured wtih Promarkers and decorated with teeny gems;
Sentiment: Craftwork Cards;
Paper: Papermania "Rose Garden";
Supplies: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts; papermania gems; lace from my stash;
Tools: large and small classic circles and large classic scalloped circle nestabilities; Leone Em "Ash Family" leaf punch; Papermania small butterfly punch.

As always I would like to enter this for one or two other challenges:
Stamp Something - Something to Celebrate
Flutterby Wednesday's #124 - Sparkle & Shimmer
Sentimental Sundays #22 - Let's See Some Dimension
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - Non-standard shape card

This week there are 2 fab prizes on offer from our regular sponsor Penny Black.

Don't forget to pop over to the main challenge blog for full details, and hope you'll join in !

Have a great weekend.
