Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 67

Morning Folks and before you know it.... it's Saturday once again....I swear it comes round quicker and quicker every week and of course....Saturday means it's time to look out our Penny Blacks.......another fabulous response last week to Domi's beautiful sketch and gorgeous takes on the sketch from everyone.
The challenge this week on Penny Black Saturday is

I immediately thought vintage and I know that this card looks absolutely nothing like the sneaky peek on Thursday...oops.....didn't like that thought I would take the vintage theme and have a little play....give it a bit of a modern twist

Papers: Jillybean Soup 100% Recycled Kraft Paper
Image: Penny Black "Enjoy"
Sentiment: Brenda Pinnick Clear Sticker
Martha Stewart....Doiley Lace Edge Punch
Flowers & Buttons......Hero Arts
Lace & Twine from stash
Self Adhesive Pearls
And thank heavens that these cute little self adhesive pearls come in a strip.....because no way would I fancy trying to line them up individually.
We have another fabulous prize for one lucky winner this week and I apologise....because my photography does not do it justice at all
from Simply Create

October Afternoon Daydream Collection Papers
Matching Bazzill Cardstock
Alphas & Rub-ons
Can't wait to see what you all create this week with your lace and pearls....will be popping over to pay you all a visit.....and we have a little surprise for you over at Penny Black Saturday....yes we have decided to embrace the latest technology and will be using Mr Linky this week for the first time...fingers crossed I got it right.
As you can see I am still in this Kraft paper mode.....well a girl has to try anything to get the creative juices flowing again.....but I think I may just have found the cure.....pop on over tomorrow when I will tell the meantime...happy crafting everyone.

Hugs Kath xxxxx
Edited to add......I have been getting lots of questions about the Kraft Paper....where did I get it.......I am using the unpatterned side of 12 x 12 Jillybean Soup Papers....the Black Bean Collection which I bought from Simply Create...who unfortunately don't have a website.... but when I did a little digging on the Internet....I found THIS.
