Penny Black Challenge


I've never entered this challenge before, although I follow it regularly, because the examples are always so stunning, I never think my cards are good enough to enter. However, today, I was playing about with greens and yellows, and came up with this card, hope you like it ladies :-)
Stamps used are Penny Black 'Casual', Printworks word stamp and Papermania background papers..when I stamped the image, I smudged the ink slightly because I wanted a soft, muted look ....
The Penny Black blog link is down the left hand side of my blog - go and enjoy!!

Your card is beautiful. Love those greens and yellows you chose and the sentiment is wonderful. You should join in often, all levels of stampers are involved and I always see something in someone elses work I want to try.
