Penny Black card and mid month challenge reminder


I had some bright yellow flowers, card and lace in my stash which had not seen the light of day for years. I decided that this was the time to set them free and use them up. I had to use black  and white to lower the tone with a spot of red to give some interest. My PB image was perfect in shape and appearance as I did not have to add much colour to it. I was really pleased with the result and have got rid of stash that would otherwise have been thrown away.
This is also time to remind  challenge lovers that The Penny Black and More
" It's your choice" challenge is half way through the month. This is a nice and easy challenge so why not pop over to the PB blog  and enter your card or project.
The only things you need to remember is that the focal element of your card must be a stamped image, sentiment or Stickeroo - any make of stamp - but no Digi's are allowed. Just remember "you have to be in it to win it" Guest Designers are welcome too.  Just add GD after your name when you enter your card or project via Mr Linky.
Sponsors for the November challenge are:-
Penny Black
Joanna sheen
Crafts U Love
Sir Stampalot

I have entered my card into a few challenges which are listed below.
