Penny Black Challenge

Here I am again... 2 days in a row... I am doing well this week ain't I...
Last night I decided to take on the Penny Black challenge which this week is "Soft & Sweet".
For the base I used a lovely soft muted gold card, upon which I layered a sheet of paper from the new "Wild Asparagus" range from My Mind's Eye... then I stamped my image onto some soft cream card, inked the edges & coloured the image using Bruynzeel water colour pencils. Also decoupaged the flower although it's not too obvious in the picture (sorry). This was then layered onto another piece of the soft gold card & placed on the front of the card. Finally I cut some flowers from another sheet of the "Wild Asparagus" papers, curled them slightly & attached to the front of the card then used some lovely card candy for the centres.
Well no more gibbering from me just now as I have to get on & organised for the man arriving to attach a new wrought iron gate to my bunny motel. This means that my bunnies can still get plenty of fresh air even when I'm not around....
Also need to decide what my next challenge is going to be. LOL...
Happy crafting
