Penny Black- Box

This month the theme for the challenge at Penny Black at Allsorts is "Black and White and one other colour" and I used Pink as my other colour. Some months ago my friend gave me this lovely box and I decided to turn it into a pencil box for my grandaughter. I can put this in as a little "extra" with her Birthday present. I used die cuts, punched out dots (hole punch ), lace, pearls, gems, a heart charm and of cause my gorgeous Penny Black image. I stamped a little butterfly which I left un-coloured. I used Promarkers to colour in my image and added a little bow to her hair. I hope she will  like it and when the pencils are long gone it can be used for trinkets. 
There are some fabulous prizes on offer as usual on the Penny Black at Allsorts blog here:- Pop over to get all the details and check out the fabulous makes by the designer team. The challenge runs for the whole month and  prizes of rubber stamps are given away every week. There is also the added chance of winning a set of Aqumarkers  from Promarker and a 10%
lifetime discount given by PB stamps.

Here is a list of the challenges I have entered:-  Do it yourself Use die cuts Cute For a child Bling Bling Dies or punches and ribbon Punches Bling/sparkle Create something for a Birthday Bling
