Penny Black Saturday #140 - Pearls and lace

Eek!! I'm running a little late this morning and am a little late with today's offering .... Saturday again already, which has to mean it's time for another Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Thanks so much to everyone who got to grips with making the dreaded male cards last week - stunning entries as always! Don't forget to check out the main challenge blog to see if you are lucky winner.

This week we have a rather more girly theme for you ... we would like to see

Pearls and lace

on your creation. You can interpret this any way you like so long as you submit a new piece of work and use a Penny Black image, large sentiment or stickeroo as the main focus of your project.

This week we have two more yummy prizes for two randomly selected winners -

Firstly. Dick at PB Stamps

is offering a 15% off lifetime discount voucher, and

Fantastic Ribbons

is offering one winner 4 reels of ribbon of the winner's choice.


Do go and check out the fabulous creations by the rest of the DT - here's my card for this week.

Main image: Penny Black "Cheesecake Wish" , coloured with Promarkers and Copics and decorated with Stickles;
Sentiments: "It's Your Birthday" from PB transparent set "Salutations"; "make a wish" from PB transparent set "Critter Party";
Papers: BasicGrey "Wisteria";
Supplies: large and small flat gardenias, pearls all from Wild Orchid Crafts; lace from my stash;
