Penny Black Challenge

What a fantastic challenge this week over at Penny Black where we have been assigned to create something using a colour recipe of Blue, Tan & Cream.
Well just as I thought my problems with Mr Blogger had been resolved I ended up being locked out of my account for the last few days hence why I haven't been posting or even moderating comments. Thankfully today all seems to be well again so here goes.
For my card I layered some MME "Wild Asparagus paper onto my base card & wrapped some ribbon around. Stamped my image onto some cream handmade paper & then again onto some more MME paper & cut these flowers out. Inked the edge of the cream card & layered onto some MME paper, which I then layered onto a piece of card for stability. Cut this out & mounted on base card using silicone. Attached my MME flower heads to the card & added some card candy to finish off.
Image : Penny Black Whispers (I found mine on ebay)
Card Candy : Craftwork Cards
Ribbon & Handmade Paper : From stash
Well must dash now as going out shopping with hubby for a few hours, then back to the old crafting again. Ohhh it's a hard life we have isn't it... LOL....
Happy crafting
