Spring Birthday

Hi everyone,

I thought I would treat myself to a bit of crafty time this afternoon!

There is a spring theme challenge going on at Penny Black Saturday Challenge and I couldn't resist joining in!

Unfortunately the picture makes the ribbon look lumpy :( in real life it isn't though!

- 6x6 card stock
- summertime designs backing paper
- papermania papers (i think... they were snippets!)
- penny black image
- spellbinders nestabilities circles and scalloped circles
- ribbon from stash
- sentiment lili of the valley sentiment stamps
- flower WHSMITH
- papermania gems

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Di's Snippet Challenge

Have a great week!

Hi Laura

I am pleased you managed some crafty time .. .. and what a lovely card you made too!!

Love this PB image .. . and it is so lovely to see the flowers in colours other than yellows and oranges (which is what I "always" end up using LOL!!).

Great use of your snippets too.

Hope all is good with you.

Great combination of pink and orange together. I only have one penny black stamp and love how clearly it stamps out each time. Must get some more when my pennies jar is full enough! I think there may be a rave going on down in the playground. Spread the word. Hugs mrs A.
