I'm scheduling today's post, as last night Alan and I were invited to a friend's 'Strictly Dancing' themed 50th Birthday Party and the dress code was Black Tie and Evening Dress and i may be feel a little tired from all the dancing ;-)
We are up to mid month at Penny Black And More and this month it's 'Stencils, Masks And Embossing Folders' and as usual we have some fabby sponsors :
All Occasion Dies
Yours Or Mine Papercraft
And one lucky person using a Penny Black image will be picked to be Guest Designer for next month, 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.
The image is : Penny Black - 'Ginger / 3843K / 2008'(i've paper pieced the dress and handbag), the papers are : Crafts House - 'Allsorts', the embossed section is : Cuttlebug - 'Happy Birthday', the 50 has been cut with : Sizzix - 'Fruit Smoothie', embossed with : Cuttlebug - Swiss Dots' (also embossed the leaves with the same folder) and then heat embossed with : WOW - 'Gold Embossing Powder' (along with the pearl in the centre of the flower), the flower is : Tim Holtz - 'Tattered Flower Garland'
The colour is Black And Gold - the papers and card are pearlescent, but looking at the photo, it's making the gold card look a muted beige colour.
The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :
Chocolate, Coffee And Cards - where the Challenge is 'No Circles'
Moving Along With The Times - where the Challenge is 'Die Cuts And Or Punches
Brown Sugar - where Challenge No: 129 is 'Girly Birthday'
Lisa B Designs - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes'
Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x
