Gifts for you!

I loved the look of this fortnight's BasicGrey Challenge sketch...so just had to have a go. The image is 'Gifts for you!' by Penny Black, the papers are all from the 'Sultry' pad by BasicGrey'...and I distressed the edges, and added some faux stitching using my Cutterbee Bug and a green pen. The swirl is a Whiff of Joy stamp, stamped in Versamark, and embossed with pearl green powder. The flowers are a mixture of Prima and Poppicrafts...and they're held in place using some Papermania pearl brads...or 'split pins'...which I hope qualifies for this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge....where the theme is 'Pins & Pearls'...I was a bit scared of using a real pin...wouldn't want to injure the postie! lol



Beautiful card
