Blossoms and Bows


How time flies. It is halfway reminder time for the Penny Black and More April challenge " Blossoms and Bows". Enter your card / project for your chance to win some fabulous craft prizes. Up for grabs this month are prizes from Penny Black, Crafty Ribbons and Classy Crafts. Pop over to the PB blog here to get all the details.

I made this quick and simple card using a gorgeous Penny Black Stamped image called  Flying stars. I felt the image needed no colouring so I popped it on top of a die cut and just added a few Petaloo flowers. I added pearls around the edges as I felt it needed a "little something" to bling it up a bit. I finished it off with some beautiful organza striped ribbon.  There you have it, a simple black and white card that I will use as a Get Well or Thank You card.
I have entered it into a few challenges l isted below.
