Penny Black Saturday #152!

Good morning! Yey – it’s the weekend!! I’m scheduling this as I’m in Bath on a Hen weekend, probably with a massive hangover at this point!! I’m glad they invented scheduled posting as there’s no way I’d make it otherwise! But I’m here now for this weeks Penny Black Saturday challenge! I loved seeing all last weeks Clean & Simple cards, but we couldn’t leave the other side of card making fans out, this week we’d like to see Fussy & Fancy! It was quite refreshing making this card, feeling like I could keep adding stuff and it wouldn’t matter, I’m not usually a fan of full on fuss but it was a nice change! Pauline is sponsoring this month, she's bravely giving up a gorgeous stamp for one lucky entry!
As soon as I saw this sketch I knew it's what I'd use as there's lots of room for frilly bits and embellishments! Also, the colours match each other a little better in real life!
Here's the challenges I'm entering this into -
Sketch and Stash Challenge - this sketch (new stash is this paper and the little glittery flowers have been very neglected - so much so, the sticky on the backs had dried up!)
Simon Says Stamp - Sparkle & Shine
PaperPlay - Sparkle Galore
Paper Sundaes - Birthday
Sir Stampalot Challenge - Magical Worlds
Spoonful of Sugar - Anything Goes
Thanks for looking, have a great weekend!
Image - Penny Black 'Mimi in Paris'
Colouring - Copics & Stickles
Papers - Kaiser Craft 'Lilac Avenue' & Pink Petticoat
Ribbon, flowers & gems - stash
Sentiment - made on the PC & a Kars Label punch
Borders - Fiskars 'Sunburst' punch
