Penny Black Allsorts card and tag


I made this card and tag for my first post on the Penny Black @ Allsorts blog since I became a part of the designer team. I was really pleased at how it looked when it was finished. It reminded me of days out in the snow when I was a child. The water always froze on the field near where I lived and we used to get up early and race down to the field to skate on the frozen water. I am so pleased to be working with the girls and looking at the fabulous creations they make. Why not pop over and take a look at the inspiration cards from the team and play along in the challenge. http://pennyblackatallsorts.blogspot.com/ This month the challenge is called "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" and I am sure you will have a design in mind for this theme. There are some gorgeous Penny Black stamps up for grabs and the challenge runs for a whole month so you have plenty of time to make your creation. You can get inspiration on the Penny Black blog here:- http://pennyblackinc.wordpress.com/
Here are the details of what I used for my card:-
 8"x8" card with embossed detail
Designer paper ( I used plain and patterned sides)
Penny Black image ( I watercoloured her using colours I mixed to co-ordinate with my papers)
Lace, ribbon, glue, glitter, pearls and beads
Snowflakes cut on my Cricut.

the card is just beautiful, but the additional snowflake (is it an ornament or a little taglet?) is just SUCH a fabulous addition! love this - thanks so much for playing with the Charisma Gals! xo

Shirley said...

The extra snowflake is actually a tag Leah but you have given me the idea that I could put it on my Tree as an ornament.
