Penny Black 17

This week’s Penny Black Saturday Challenge is a sketch, (yippee)… Challenge 17 ~ Sketch #3. This week the PBSC team has another fabulous stamp to give away, generously donated by our sponsor Sir Stampalot. 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.

Do you have designer paper in your collection that you hoard? The designer paper that I used for this card, Petal Patch, from Stampin Up is one that I try not to use very often. It just bothers me to use it because I only have a few sheets of it left and it hasn’t been available through Stampin Up for a few years. I had to convince myself that it coordinated so well with the dusty blue blossoms it had to be use for this card!

The hedgie image is Buzz in the Air and the round Thank You is from Close to My Hearts “T” Solo set. I added White Fun Flock to the center of the flower and then added another layer of flock to give the flower center a bit more dimension. (click on image for a larger view).

If you have a chance, come and join in the fun this week and I’ll be looking forward to seeing all the wonderful Penny Black creations. Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend. ~ Jovi

  6. Your card is absolutely precious! You are right...the paper does go perfectly with the dusty blue blossom. Of course, I feel your pain about those retired papers...especially the ones that you love. Fortunately for us, there are always new pretty papers to replace the ones we miss:O] Gorgeous card, Jovita!!
