Garden Visit / Penny Black And More


I'm not quite home yet - but nearly !!, we would have been turfed off the ship at 9am this morning, so this is another schedule post - so am hoping this works.

This month's Challenge at Penny Black And More is a fabby Sketch And The Option Is To Use Autumnal Colours : 

And Our Wonderful Sponsors Are :

And One lucky person using a Penny Black Image will be picked to be Guest Designer for next month and win a gift too. So pop over to Penny Black And More, check out the other amazing inspiration the very talented team have come up with, and join in the fun, but please do remember you can use any image you like, except Digi's.

And here's what i made :

When i looked in my box of images i came across this one - but i must confess, that half way through making the card i found the stamp in a sale and purchased it :-), the papers are - First Edition 'New Leaf'', the corner die is - Sizzix - 'Architectual Accent #3', now the bow, mmmm i tried to follow the tutorial on the lovely Sue's blog, but mine just looked pants, so i sorted of cheated and bought - Craftwork Cards 'Vintage Chic Paper Bows' (there are 2 size bows) and used 1 of them as a template, the pearls are - 'Habico'

Today's Challenges : 

Craft Room  - where the Challenge is 'Something New' - Mine is the stamp and the Craftwork Cards Paper Bows, i used as a template for my bow.

Let's Craft And Create - where Challenge No: 77 is 'Animal Antics'

The Corrosive Challenge  - where Challenge No: 182 is 'All About The Fall'

Simon Say's Stamp - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes'
