Penny Black Saturday #153 - One For The Girlies

Yippee! It's a Bank Holiday weekend again here in the UK, and time for another Penny Black Saturday Challenge. So sorry I haven't been able to get round and comment on your wonderful creations for last week's Fussy and Fancy challenge due to the problems we've been having with Mr. Blogger - but they were all wonderful! The stamp I donated last week will be winging its way to one lucky winner - do go and check out the main challegne blog to see if it's you!

This week our challenge theme is

One For The Girlies

Brilliant theme for me this week, as I love all things girly - dresses ... pink ... flowers ... gems ... ribbons ...lace - ooh fab! And if you think it's a great theme too you could be in with a chance of winning this week's lovely goodies, to be awarded to 2 randomly drawn winners!

Firstly ..... 4 rolls of ribbon of the winner's choice from Fantastic Ribbons

and secondly, a 15% lifetime discount voucher from PB Stamps

Here is my girly creation - the other DT ladies have gone girly too so don't forget to check them out.

I decided to go for a freindship card, as I so love this cute vintage PB image. Normally I tend to use this image with vintage colours and papers, but I was feeling girly so decided to go for a fresh summery pink and green colour scheme - i think it is my favourite colour combo.. A different look for this image, but I'm quite pleased with it :-)

Main image: Penny Black "Rain or Shine Friends" (312K), coloured with Promarkers;
Sentiment: Penny Black "Second Self" (3386D);
Papers: Pink Petticoat "Vintage Rose" and Papermania "Forever Friends - Springtime";
Supplies: cherry blossoms and lace from Wild Orchid Crafts; roses from Sweet Lilac (Crafts4U2Do); papermania pink heart gems; ribbon and pearls from my stash;
Tools: Marianne D Creatables doily die; Leone Em "Ash Family" leaf punch.
