Penny Black Vintage Blossoms



Hi everyone, time for another challenge at Penny Black and More. For the month of April the challenge theme is Blossoms and Blooms. I choose a PB rubber stamp called Blooming pansies and did minimal colouring as the papers were quite bold. It turned out a little bit vintage/ a little bit shabby. Not quite one or the other but I still like it. It didn't help when it did not photograph well and the sun was in and out all the time. Well, can't complain really as it is so nice to see that little bit of sun even though it is still quite cold.
There are several prizes up for grabs this and every month  for the challenge  so pop over to the PB blog to get all the info you need and a list of sponsors for this month.
I have entered my card into a few challenges listed below.
