Penny Black Saturday Challenge 34


Wow look at this ... day one of the new Penny Black challenge and I've made my card!! This week's challenge is to make a "Circle Card"

I first cut out a large circular card from white cardstock which I edged with pink ink, I then cut a smaller circle from patterned parchment, then a smaller scalloped circle from co-ordinating pink patterned paper (both from this month's Making Cards Magazine) and finally the white circle which I edged with green in then stamped the Penny Black image. The balloons and gift are coloured using Sakura pens and H2o's then decoupaged onto the main image. I finished off the card with sparkling flowers and a pink organza bow.
