All you need is Love/ Penny Black blog hop info

The challenge at Penny Black at Allsorts ( this month is "All you need is Love". Check out the lovely creations from the regular designer girls for inspiration. There are some great prizes up for grabs. As well as the regular four stamps, there will be a special one off prize for a winner selected from all the new followers who link up this month. There is also  a new sponsor. PB Stamps , who are offering a lifetime 15% discount on products purchased from their store. If you have never visited them, pop over and take a look at all the lovely Penny Black stamps for sale.
I so enjoyed making this card and it did take longer than I thought . I have had a pack of these gorgeous shaped cards laying around for a few weeks and  decided it was time to use one. I used lovely 12 x 12 scrapbook paper to make the background and added more sparkle, lace, flowers, shiny flower centres, and pearls. I stamped and coloured this gorgeous Penny Black image. I cut it out and used some pads behind to give it a bit of depth. There is so much glitter and sparkle but difficult to see on here. I still have not found the perfect way to get sparkle to show on my cards. I have entered it into a few challenges which are listed below.  Girlie Anything goes The letter "C"  (Christmas)  Anything goes Colour challenge Fav.winter colour -Pink  Pearls and Lace Last minute Xmas cheer Pick a prev.challenge (No 60 xmas) Glitter For someone special Anything goes Cut something out (stamped image) Anything goes

There will also be a blog hop on the15th  of January with lots of fun and excitement and more fabulous prizes to be won. Make sure you do not miss out on the chance to win some great prizes. Why not grab our blog hop badge and help pass the word.  For full details pop over to the Penny Black at Allsorts blog.
