Another Penny Black

I'm back today with another of my new Penny Black stamps. This is 'flower gala' - there are two stamps in the bag and the other is a work in progress card at the moment. I stamped the image several times and coloured with Promarkers, then stamped a Happy Little Stampers sentiment onto a scrap of vellum which I wrapped round the image. I used a punch to round the corners before adding to a pink card blank. To finish I added a couple of Cheery Lyn butterfly dies with some sparkly gems on the bodies.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets' vellum + butterfly die-cuts
Happy Little Stampers Dies challenge 'anything goes with dies'
Creative Artiste challenge 'anything goes'
Love To Create challenge 'anything creative / mixed media goes'
Cupcake Inspirations challenge 'photo colour inspiration'
The ABC challenge 'K is for kind'
Card and Scrap challenge 'anything goes'
Creative Corner challenge 'anything goes'

Thanks for your visit today. I'm off to back up ALL my files so that hubby can perform a bit of surgery (to clean out all the dust) on my laptop and then reinstall Windows as it's taking about 15 minutes to start up each time!
