Penny Black Saturday Challenge

This week the challenge over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge is "Let's get dotty" ! I am so pleased I was able to join in with a challenge this week. Here is my card ....

The pink card is from The Papermillshop.

The dotty paper is Papermania Retro Floral. This is a lovely pack of papers and I used it a lot last year. I managed to find another pack in the sales recently so I'm well chuffed !

The green card is a new pack by Papermania of just coloured card, smooth on one side and textured on the other. There are some fabulous colours in this pack. I used my new SU spiral punch on this card.

I am not sure what this Penny Black image is called because someone gave it to me in a swap - sorry. I coloured the image with my ProMarkers and distressed the edges with old paper and walnut stain distress ink.

The greeting is a stamp by Whispers Words (DoCrafts) which is on sale at The Glitterpot for 99p along with some others (I think they may be new ones out). The stamp is actually quite large and has "birthday surprise !" on it but I masked all the other words so I could pick out "Surprise !". It has been stamped in Brilliance Coffee Bean ink.

The button is a Basic Grey button with some pink cord and a charm from e-bay. It's a shame you can't see it but on the reverse of the butterfly it says "created for you"

I have added some bling to the corners. These are some Papermania gems I found in my stash.

You must pop over there and see the DT's creations - they are fabulous and so dotty !

Hope you are all having a good weekend and not too windswept ?!
