Guest Designer - Penny Black & More

I was picked to be the Guest Designer for this month's Penny Black & More Challenge...where the theme is a nice and easy one:

'Anything Goes'
So there's really no excuse not to play along!

As usual, there will be some fabulous prizes on offer from Penny Black Inc:

The card I've made is for my Nan's 95th birthday later this month...the image is called 'Well Wishers'...which I coloured using watercolour pencils. The papers are from the 'Vintage Charms' pad by My Mind's Eye...I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The ruffle is pleated seam binding ribbon attached with double sided tape, the pearls are from Hobbycraft, and the sentiment stamp is from a set by Papermania.


Please pop over to the Penny Black & More Challenge for lots of lovely inspiration from the fabulous design team.
