A Friend's Birthday and the Penny Black Saturday Challenge

I finally got around to doing some more cardmaking yesterday and boy, it felt good !

I made this card for a friend's birthday with a Penny Black stamp I haven't used before (don't tell the other half !). The stamp is called "Good Friends" and it was lovely to paint.

After making my card I had a look at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge which is into its second week. The theme of this week's challenge is "Friendship".

"I think its fair to say we have all made some wonderful friends through blogging so
this week we would like you to create something you would give to a friend".

Funny enough, I thought as I was going to send this card to a friend and the Penny Black stamp was also called "Good Friends" I entered it for the challenge.

I used to make this card :

Papers from Daisie Company called "Faded Charm"

Penny Black stamp called "Good Friends" painted with Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils.

Sentiment made from my nestabilities and stamped with a Studio G clear stamp

Flowers from Poppicrafts

Pearl brads from Papermania.
