Penny Black pink & brown challenge

I've done this card for this weeks Penny Black colour challenge - I love pink and brown together almost as much as I love blue and brown.


I had a rummage through my old papers again, I got this sheet about 3 years ago - how's that for stroking and not using lol. The paper is AMM studio collection. I've also used the Swiss Dots folder to carry through the dotty theme. The flowers are a mix of Prima and also some felt flowers that I cut out with a Sizzix die - love how these dies cut felt and a lot cheaper than buying them pre-cut!!

I've stamped a sentiment inside this time instead of leaving it blank (saves me having to inflict my shocking scrawl on the recipient.

Recipe
Penny Black Rainin' Daisies coloured with the usual distress inks/H2O's
Paper AMM Studio Collection
Sentiments are from a Scrappy Cat set that was 1/2 price at Hobbycraft on the weekend. Love the sentiments in this set.
The flat backed pearls are from Saly (link in my side bar)

And thanks to my son for making me another watermark (I'm hopeless at this sort of thing so thank goodness he comes to my rescue!!)

I have received this award from Paula - thank you so much sweetie.

I have quite a few awards to pass on but please bear with me, I've had a not so nice health scare and right now am not feeling much like posting but I will pass these on as soon as I am able to.

And I received this award from Nicola Anki and Anesha, thanks so much sweeties. xx



Thanks for looking,

I love the felt flowers, will have to try that one and I have put some embossing folders and nesties on my birthday list, so here's hoping! (I did try to put them on my daughters bday list for Sat, but she noticed! )lol

  11. Wow Bev, you did it again! LOL. Another stunning card. I love this colour combination too! Pink & brown look fab togheter.
    I really needed a die cutting machine, (I'm in need of a lot of things lately, LOL), so I ordered a Big shot, I love what you do with nestabilities, so I want to buy some too. Those felt flowers look fab too! This really isn't going to be a good year for my wallet LOL.

    Bev, I hope your feeling better today and that the health scare has gone by now. Take good care of yourself hun.
