Penny Black saturday challenge card

Hiya everyone,

I've had a bit of a lazy day today due to the car breaking down yesterday. It turns out we had just ran out or petrol as the petrol gauge is broken. We're taking it to be fixed on monday where it will get MOT'd at the same time. It gave me chance to have a play so I thought I'd ink up one of my Penny Blacks and enter the Penny Black saturday challenge as I've never had chance to enter it before - this weeks theme is "anything goes". I decided on my city divine girly stamp which I coloured with my promarkers. The papers are from a DCWV paperstack called blossoms and butterflies (some of which are glittered or foiled). I decided on pink and blue colourscheme as I tend to use a lot of pink and green so I thought it would be a nice change. I added a little glamourdust to her top and added a small diamante to her hair. The sentiment is also a penny black stamp that I've had for ages.

It really is a novelty just making a card for a bit of fun as apposed to the DT work as I'm normally so busy. I can guarantee all the DT will pile up on me all at once! Lol

I have also been having a good clearout of crafty stuff and selling it via a crafty buying and selling page on Facebook. The only thing is, I'm buying stuff as soon as I sell some of mine which kinda defeats the object Lol. I have bought stuff I've wanted for a while though (and several impulsive buys but we'll ignore those shall we?) :D

I will enter this into the following challenges:-

Penny black saturday - Anything goes
Craft your passion - Anything goes
Happileigh scrappin - Anything goes
Stampin scrappin fun - Summer
There she goes - Summer
