Penny Black Saturday #40!

Happy Saturday everyone! Yey, it's the weekend (even though I work every Saturday - boo!) This weeks Penny Black Saturday is a fabulous sketch by Tracie - it's a goodie! Although my card is not! I don't know why I don't like it and the photo looks even worse! It's quite sparkly in real life! Oh well! I coloured the stamp in with Whispers and then blended it out with a water brush, then added little pink 'flowers' and covered them and the proper flowers with Glamour Dust, I hope you like it more than me! The prize this week is amazing! A $25 voucher for Simon Says Stamp! How cool?! Thanks for visiting!

Stamp - 'Fantasy' by Penny Black water coloured with Whispers and Glamour Dust
Paper - K&Co McKenna
Flowers, lace & ribbon - stash
Corners - Cuttlebug die
How good was Comic Relief last night?! I loved it! At work, we got everyone to wear red and pay £2 then I made Fairy Cakes and charged a minimum of 50p, we made a total of £62!! (There's only 18 of us!) Not bad I thought, I wish I'd taken piccies though! I hope you all had fun! xx
