Penny Black Saturday #91!

Good morning! Crikey - where has the week gone?! It's time for another Penny Black Saturday challenge and this week it's to make an 'Easel Card'. There's lots of these in blog land and to moment, and for good reason, they're fab! If you're not sure how to make them, HERE is a list of tutorials (although they're dead easy!) Valentines are sponsoring this challenge so you could win this fab SU Corner Rounder punch. Here's my card, again fairly similar to my last few! I've made this for my mum, and still have 2 more to make - one for my brother to give her and one for Jamie to give to his mum! I've tried colouring the background with my Koh-i-noor pencils, hmm, I think I need more practice! I hope you like it and can join in with us, thanks for looking!

Colouring - Copics & Koh-I-Noor Pencils
Papers - Pink Petticoat
Sentiment - made on the PC
