Penny Black Saturday #125 & Sweet Stop Sketch #80!

Good morning! I hope you're all having a relaxing/fun/exciting weekend (delete as appropriate!) It's time for a couple of Saturday challenges! First off is this weeks Penny Black Saturday challenge, this week we'd like you to include Zig-Zags or triangles (or both) on your cards, you could use modern style Christmas trees, border punches, pinking shears, ric rac etc! And for one lucky entry there's a 15% lifetime discount voucher from PB Stamps.
I have just about managed to include zig zags and triangles on this card but only if you count the trees as triangles! I am also entering this card into this weeks Stamp Something challenge which is Stamp Something Pink in honour of October being Breast Cancer Awareness month.
I've put away the Copics and broken out the embossing powders with both of my cards this week, a rarity as I get into a bit of a mess with them normally! Lol! I hope you like it!
Stamp - Joy.Hope by Penny Black
Papers - DCWV 'Rose Tinted Christmas'

Last but not least is this weeks Sweet Stop Sketches challenge, I've flipped it this week to make the most of these fab stamps and paper. I'm combining this challenge with this weeks Spoonful of Sugar challenge which is Let's get Punchy - or use punches and die cuts. The little squares are done with my nesties and the border is with a Fiskars punch.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you can join in with one of both of these fab challenges! Have a great weekend!
