Penny Black Saturday #190!

Morning! I hope you're enjoying your saturday morning! We're currently in the calm before the storm as our 2 year old niece Lulu is on the way to stay for the weekend, and it's the first time we've looked after her! Aggghh!! We've got lots of toys, DVDs and chocolate buttons lined up - wish me luck!!
Yesterday was a lovely day though, me and my mum went to the Make It show in Farnborough, now that I'm back and had a blog browse, I realise a few others of you were there too, I might have even passed you! Anyway I got loads of lovely bits and bobs, I think it was better than last years, here's a pic of my haul!

Mostly essentials like tape and a new guillotine after mine flung itself off my desk and broke! But also a few new dies, some bargain ink pads, a few stamps and embellies and some delish glitter! All in all, I'm pretty chuffed, and although my mum isn't a papercrafter, I think she quite enjoyed it too!

Anyway, now for the reason you're here! This weeks Penny Black Saturday challenge, and this week, Nat has designed a sketch for us to use!


This weeks prize is from the fantastic, erm, Fantastic Ribbons! There's 4 rolls of your choice of ribbon to be won!

Here's my card using this sadly neglected Mimi image and some new papers which a had to force myself to cut into! There's a litle bit of new stash there too as this was only made last night! The swirly die cut shape, it's lurvely!! And excuse my colouring, I wanted the paper to tone but it was a weird texture! Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like it! Have a great weekend!


Challenges;
Daring Cardmakers - Marie Antoinette
Simon Says Stamp - 3 papers
Allsorts - Anything Goes

A very cute card! I find the sketch swaps so interesting-see everyone's take using the same base. I need to get me some of those Mimi stamps myself.
