Penny Black Challenge

Hello! After Stampin Up! my next favourite has to be penny black (closely followed by the Magnolia stamps) and i am trying to find the time to take part in some of the great challenges that are going on on the various blogs - but where does the time go?? What with working full time and my babies and needing to sleep - lol! Anywsay lastnight saw the second meet of my crafting group and there were only a couple of use so I got to make a card...

The challenge this week was black, white and one other - I chose red - being a Manchester United fan very apt after our successful weekend! and I decoupaged the tie on the cat to bring some emphasis to it... I used SU cardstock and some SU! ribbon (the red) and the black and white ribbon were purchases that I made from Port Sunlight on Saturday from a stall that is due to go live with a website this week - great quality and great prices - if I find the details I will post them - ribbon is one of my weaknesses! (another one)

The sentiment is backed with SU! cardstock and added at an angle to the image. I added some gems to finish the card off I always think they fill in gaps nicely! lol...

I hope you like the card - I am hoping to take part in more of the challenges out there and have a couple in mind - keep looking over the next few days, thanks for looking and your comments are appreciated. As tigger would say TTFN and thanks for looking - Debbi x x x
