Decoupage Card

Good Morning all,
 I put this one together last night. The decoupage was a freebie with Papercraft Inspirations magazine. I have used a coloured blank, layered the decoupage onto pink card and added pink gingham ribbon. Makes me feel hungry looking at it!

Happy crafting,

Sammy xx

Penny Black Saturday Challenge week 102

Well its been a while since I entered a challenge. This weeks challenge on Penny Black Saturday Challenge is Lots of Dots. I have used the Penny Black image form the 'Hugs' Transparent set, Papermania 'Sweet Nothings' paper pad. I have coloured the image using my new Promarkers and enhanced the flowers with some glitter flock. Ribbon, dots and gems from stash.

Feeling happier today!

Well I am just back after a visit to the craft shop. The staff were lovely and very helpful. I am now booked into their Promarker Saturday club and also Card Making club. So i had to buy 6 Promarkers to start off my collection. I lay the blame entirely at my former next door neighbour but a great friend who showed me her images which she had coloured using them. I can not wait til my first class which is on the 3rd June.
I am off now to have a little play with those new pens!!!!!!

Enjoy the sunshine
