Penny Black Saturday Challenge 15

The challenge over on the Penny Black Challenge blog this week is to decorate the insides of our cards. This is something that I don't usually do, and I've kind of stretched the term 'inside' with my card, and created a second flap on the front of the card, which I have decorated the inside of. I've used one of my favourite Penny Black stamps ('Birthday Dog') for the main image on the front of my card, and have coloured it with watercolour pencils.


The front of my card:


I've used a mixture of papers by Papermania ('Sweet Nothings') and Dovecraft ('Birthdays'), and have had fun with my Nesties again. The sentiment stamps are all by Hero Arts from a set called 'Fabulous Birthday'.


Inside the flap on the front of the card:


I know that technically it's not the inside of the card, but I thought that it was a fun idea!
