Penny Black Challenge

Well last night, while watching 'pride of britain' i sat and coloured this cute little image for this weeks Penny Black Challenge, all i can say is thank goodness i was using water with my marvy's, oh how sad was it? and how inspiring too, i don't think there was one story that i didn't cry at, by the end of the programme i felt exhausted. Anyway, i'm not at all happy with my colouring on this card but as the image was one that was sent to me, i couldn't stamp out another so i decided to use it anyway. The Theme for the PBC was 'seasons' so i chose to do 'spring' as all i seem to be doing lately is christmas cards and i thought it would make a nice change. I have matt and layered the image on lemon and white cardstock and i ran the white card through my scallop cutter. I have no idea where i got my ribbon from as its been in my stash for a long time but i finished the card by adding 4 lemon brads and the sentiment spring which i stamped out with little letters i bought for £1. The card i have used is from the 'designer card set' from papermania.
