Pink Penny Black

Hello to you all and many many thanks to you for stopping by. Today I want to share with you my card for the Penny Black Challenge  'Pretty in Pink' I'm a bit behind this week and didn't think I was gonna make it in time!

I used Bev's sketch over at Wild Orchid Crafts  challenge this week. I love working from a sketch now and to think a month ago I'd never used one!
I have mixed up my papers, some are Magnolia, some are Provocraft that I have had for years (unused again) and the spotty one is recycled rags. The image is Penny Black, my flowers are a mix too, between Magnolia and of course Wild Orchid. I used a Martha Stewart border punch and frond punch and the ribbon is from my stash.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend, I have to work the next 10 days as it's half term but I still hope to get some card making in at night.
Thank you for looking

Love Laurie x
