Penny Black Saturday - Sketch!

Good morning everyone and welcome to April's Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Well - what a month it's been weather wise ... snow and freezing cold - Easter been and gone and still very little sign of spring! Despite all this we had some wonderful entries into last month's Spring Into Spring challenge - don't forget to check the main challenge blog to see if you have won a prize.
This month we've got a real treat for you - our lovely teamie Helen has produced a sketch .. and here it is.
Pretty versatile to work with, I'm sure you'll agree ... so we're really looking forwards to all your creations. Don't forget to be eligible for any of this month's prizes you just need to use a Penny Black image, large sentiment or stickeroo as the main focus of your project.
This month we are sponsored by our fabulous regular sponsors
