Penny Black Birthday Card

Hiya guys!

Just a quick one to day...lots to do! I have a card to finish for our QP and SCACD blog hop tomorrow. And then there is all the usually housey stuff to be achieved. I have an overflowing ironing basket that needs to get kicked into shape.


So i just wanted to share a quick card I made for a friend who needed a birthday card. The lady who is receiving the card likes purple so I have gone for a sophisticated colour palette of purple and black. In real life the purple on her top matches the purpley shades on the paper.

The papers are old Bo Bunny I found and the stamp is also an older Penny Black. I love it for making quick Birthday cards. The colouring doesn't take me a whole evening like it normally does!

I even had enough papers and stash to make 2 of these so i will be listing one in my Etsy shop later...once the ironing is done!!

Any questions ...please ask!

Thanks for your visit.

Back tomorrow for the new artist release for SCACD!

I love purple too & this is a stunner with the black. The white stitiching picks up the white in the design of the paper so well it took my breath away & I was hugely encouraged by what you said about colouring taking an evening. Thank you as always for lifting my day & hope the ironing didn't kick back.
