Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Floral Fantasy

It's the first Saturday of the that means it's time for a new Penny Black Saturday Challenge...and this month the theme is:

'Floral Fantasy' 

As usual, we have some fabulous prizes on offer from our lovely sponsors:

Prize - a $20 voucher

I featured my flowers on the image, using 'Daisy Chain Mice', which I coloured using watercolour pencils. The papers are from the 'Indie Chic' pad by My Minds Eye...I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. This card is for my Mum to give to my Nan for her 95th birthday later this I added a Hero Arts 'Happy Birthday' sentiment, and personalised it with some die cut numbers & letters (cut using my Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet).

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

We're also holding a DT call on this challenge, so for all of the information on that, and more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
