Penny Black easel card

This is my DT card for the Penny Black July challenge of "Flower Power". It speaks for itself really and I had fun making it. I pulled out an old embossing stencil I have had for a few years and decided to make a nice background with it. As the theme is for flower power I made sure I added plenty of flowers to my card. The PB image works beautifully for the theme. I only used three aquamarkers to add  limited colour to my image and used some pretty metal edged pearls for my flower centres. I don't know what the metal curly embellishment is called but I bent the end of it to make a little card holder stand for my sentiment.
If you want the chance to wins some lovely Penny Black prizes, letraset markers and/ or other goodies from PB stamps and sirstampalot go to for all the details of the latest challenge.
