Penny Black Saturday Challenge 92 Spring Colours


 Over at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge your creations have to have a Penny Black image or sentiment and the theme this week is spring colours.

My card also fits into these challenges too:
One Stop Craft Challenge - spots and dots
Crafty Sentiments  -  sketch
Pile it on - to get your creation on at least one other challenge and the theme is pastels.
 This is my second card for this challenge, you can enter more than once!!

I used the lovely sketch over at the new Crafty Sentiments challenge blog, thank you Lisa for the invitation to join in the fun.
 Hop over there and give them your support, they would love to see you.

I thought I would make a thank you easel card using the gorgeous Martha Stewart edge punch.
If you cut a square 3 1/4 inches and punch each side it makes this lovely frame which I matted onto a Nestibilities classic scallop square.
The image is from the Critters clear stamp set by Penny Black.
Papers I used were printed from the spring CD by Wild Rose Studio and Bazzil
The gorgeous sentiment stamp is by Stamping Up. I absolutely adore these stamps!!!!

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your day

  2. forgot to say... thanks for the idea of using that punch in that way. I have been looking at that punch and thinking... if I make a border punch... it is going to look busy, but using it as a frame is brilliant!
