Penny Black Challenge #39 - Recipe!

Welcome to the weekend, and to the latest Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Last week there was a fantastic response as usual to the something you can eat challenge - I probably speak for the whole DT in saying we spent the week in a state of drooling hunger whilst viewing all your fab creations! Don't forget to check out who won the fabby PB stickeroos!

This week the challenge requires you to get your creative juices cooking in a different way, as this week we have a

Recipe - 3 brads, 2 ribbons, 1 flower

As usual you can interpret this in any way you choose so long as you include at least one PB image on your project.

This week's prize has been donated by our very own Kath, and is a couple of fab sentiment stamps by Debbi Moore Designs.

So here is my card .... I struggled with this a wee bit cos the thought of using only 1 flower sent me cold!! ... so I interpreted it loosely and used just the one flower head lol! Also I couldn't seem to get a matching combo of any given paper plus 2 co-ordinating ribbons (I clearly need to purchase some more ribbons!!) so eventually I used just a teeny bit of my second ribbon tied in the button.

Image: Penny Black "Jump for Joy" coloured with watercolour pencils and decorated with Stickles;
Sentiment: Cuttlebug "Everyday Greetings" set;
Flowers: new Papermania packs (white & pink), Prima (green);
Brads: Doodlebug sugar coated brights.
Paper and ribbon from my stash.

I'm going to be a bit busy this next week so apologise in advance if i don't get round all your entries .. but I'll do my best :-)

Have a great weekend!
