Penny Black Saturday Challenge #27 - Recipe!

Yet another week has flown by and here we are again, ready for another Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Thanks once again to everyone who entered last week - there were some fabulous interpretations of Beth's brilliant sketch. Don't forget to look on the challenge blog later to see who won last week's great prize.

For this week's challenge it's time to get cookin' with your PB's, because the theme is

Recipe: 3,2,1 (3 flowers, 2 papers, 1 Ribbon).

As always you can make whatever you like to fulfil this challenge, so long as it contains at least one Penny Black stamp or stickeroo. Hope you will find time to pop along to the other DT members' blogs as their designs are sure to provide some inspiration.

Talking of Stickeroos, this week's fab prize is two sheets of stickeroos ... so what are you waiting for?? Let your creative juices create a great recipe!!

Here is the card I made for the challenge: no surprise it is another Christmas card LOL! I used an image from the PB Transparent set "Christmas Critters" coloured with watercolour pencils and matted onto matte red mirri card cut with my nesties. The sentiment is by Stamps Away matted in the same way, and the iridescent red/green ribbon is from my local craft shop. I particularly chose the image to co-ordinate with the background paper that is printed with words from carols, though alas both the papers are from my stash and i don't know the make. Flowers are from Prima Christmas bubbles, with silver, gold and antique bronze brads by Papermania.

Have a good weekend everyone :-)
