Penny Black Challenge - 31


The challenge this week was for a card using Brown and Pink and, of course, a PB image.
Having made a few cards of this colour combo over the last few
weeks - guess what? Yes, I was somewhat restricted with a shortage of papers. (More papers needed - add to shopping list.) Any excuse! You know I'm never this good at making a list for other shopping, but crafting....no prob.

Papers from HOTP, Nesties labels small and large with a twist - what do you think? I think it's worked. It looks a bit out, but it's an optical illusion, honest!

I'm off on a visit to Edinburgh tomorrow to see my daughter and two beautiful granddaughters. I shall only be able to visit you, but unfortunately will not be able to contribute to any challenges, but I'll be back - probably with more papers! Have a good crafting week.
