Penny Black Saturday Challenge

I couldn´t wait to ink up this little beauty which I purchased on my recent trip back home and join in the fun with PBS especially as there is a wonderful sketch to follow designed by the talented Nat. I had so much fun making this card and will definitely use this sketch many times over.



I coloured this Spring Greetings with my prisma´s, chalked the background and added a touch of glamour dust to the little bee´s wings. Papers are Creative Tones by PM and card is from stash. A bugged panel with the Swiss Dots folder , punched swirl and flat backed pearls with organza ribbon and stamped sentiment to finish.
