All my favourite things

The challenge theme at penny Black and More  this month is " All my favourite things". All the details of this fun challenge can be found on the Penny Black and More blog (link above). There are some fabulous goodies to win this month so pop over, take a look, and check out all the DT's cards for inspiration.

  At this time of year, I love having picnics when the sun is shining and the flowers look so pretty. I love all kinds of cakes too and cake HAS to be on the picnic menu.  I was trying to capture that summer scene when I made this card. The Penny Black stamp I used works perfectly for the challenge theme.  I coloured the image with promarkers and aquamarkers with colours that coordinated with my backing papers. I added these beautiful flowers which I picked up at a craft show last year and the pearl brads which are both my favourite embellishments. The swirls, sentiment circle and image circle are cut from dies. I am happy with the final result.
I have entered my card into several challenges which are listed below.   anything goes  anything goes         summer         dimention       anything goes  animal kingdom       anything goes  anything goes + sentiment  anything goes     anything goes               aqua  favourite song (summer lovin')     bling  bling   pretty pearls   hello summer  summer fun anything goes summer lovin'  pearls  anything goes flowers in bloom optional swirls use your fav. embellishments (pearls &flowers)
