Penny Black Saturday Challenge meets the One Stop Craft Challenge

I have soooooo much work to do this weekend (finishing off various music arrangements for next term), but there's a fab sketch for this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge, and I couldn't resist taking a quick break to have a play! I've used an image ('Bubble of Joy') sent to me by lovely PBSC DT member Pauline, that I'd already coloured (so saved a bit of time there!), and papers from the 'Granola' pad by BasicGrey with decked edges (made with either my deckled rectangle Nesties, or with my deckled edge tearing ruler). As this is a masculine card, I've avoided using flowers, and have cut a couple of stars (with Nesties), and added some card candy (by Craftwork Cards). The sentiment is from the 'Circular Greetings' set by Woodware. I've used a few different shaped Nestie dies on this card, so I'm also entering it for the One Stop Craft Challenge, where the theme is 'Decorative Cuts'.
