Penny Black 15

Here it is… my Penny Black Saturday Challenge. I’m a couple day’s late posting it. I just made it home from a quick four day trip to New Mexico to visit my grandma. It was wonderful spending time with her again but it’s always sad when I leave.

PBS Challenge 15 was to Decorate the Inside of Your Card. For this challenge I used the Penny Black image Delights, one of my newer stamps. The flower border image is from the set Friendship Blessing from Close to My Heart. I used the Splitcoast instructions for a Criss Cross Card, instead of taping down the flaps I opted to leave them as is so I could decorate the inside. Did you happen to notice all the bitty brads that I used as flower centers? Those are also from Close to My Heart, I just wish they came in the season colors like the big brads.

This week one of the PBSC sponsors, Craft Krafts has donated the beautiful stamp “I Love Shopping” from the talented designer Rachelle Anne Miller. For a chance to win, all you have to do is leave a comment over at PBSC Blog with the link to your work and your name will be added to the draw. The winner will be announced next Saturday on the PBSC Blog.
