Penny Black 3-2-1 does Sketch Saturday

I think this weeks Sketch Saturday challenge is perfect for the Penny Black 3-2-1 challenge, alhtough I had to tweak the sketch slightly by adding a photo corner instead of the 3rd flower at the top - it just looks too crowded (probably cos I used such a big image), and also added the ribbon which is not in the sketch but you know me and me ribbon lol.


I decided that after seeing all the beautifully decorated insides and backs of cards I would give it a try - hmmm the jury is out on this one, not sure on the green although it's a lot lighter IRL, the lights are making it look so dark :(

I got the monogram stamp from Ebay, thanks to Rach who pointed me in the right direction.


Recipe:
Penny Black Tweet Talk coloured with Prismacolors and Twinkling H2O's
Papers - K&Co Dollshouse
Sentiment stamp - Elzybells
Punches - Fiskars Threading Water and Stampin Up Photo Corner Punch
Pearls from Sally (link in my side bar)


Thanks for looking,

  1. Hi Bev, I found your blog through Nat's blog and have spent the last 2 hours having a good through your posts. You have some fabulous cards and creations on here no wonder you are on so many DTs. I love your use of flowers and embellishments on your cards and your colouring of images is fab. I will definately be popping back on a regular basis to keep up with your craftyness.
