Penny Black Saturday #152 - Fussy and Fancy

Good morning everyone ... yippee it's Saturday, so it's time for another Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Many thanks for the wonderful array of Clean and Simple cards last week - don't forget to check whther you won last week's prize.

This week we are going to the other extreme ... our theme is

Fussy and Fancy

So feel free to pile on those papers and embellishments to your heart's desire ... just remember that to be eligible for this week's prize you should submit a new project which features a Penny Black image, large sentiment or stickeroo as its main focus.

And talking of prizes .. this week I have donated the prize :-) and it is this beautiful PB floral stamp "winsome"

The rest of the DT have been getting busy making their gorgeous fussy and fancy creations so do go give them a look. Here's mine.

Main image: Penny Black "Fanfare" (3946K) coloured with Promarkers and dusted with glamour dust;
Sentiment: Debbi Moore Designs "Kerry Jo Plate 1";
Papers: Papermania "Forever Friends - Springtime";
Supplies: Dovecraft dragonfly brad; most flowers and lace from Wild Orchid Crafts (decorated with Stardust Stickles); medium lilac roses from local craft shop; pearls from my stash;
Tools: "Fleur-de-lys" nestabilities (frame); Crafts Too "Butterflies" embossing folder.

This card is actually very sparkly what with the glamour dust on the image, Stickles on the paper flowers, lilac glitter card and pearlescent white card matting - here's a close up to try to catch the sparkle a little more.
