Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 68

Morning folks...where on earth does the week minute it's Monday and before you know we are at the weekend again and time for another challenge using your much loved Penny Blacks.
Great response to our "Lace and Pearls" challenge last week and I loved all your fabulous cards....thank you so much for joining in the fun each week....we really appreciate it.
The challenge this week on Penny Black Saturday is a colour combo


I must admit that my first thought on seeing this challenge was....."oh dear this ain't gonna work" but how wrong I was......loving this one and will definitely be using this combo again.   The background paper was a little plain so I pierced a grid pattern over it with that fab little gadget I got from my fab Funky Hand teamie En and my trusty old pokey right hand man....definitely couldn't craft without him.
Papers: MME...Andrea Victoria Collection
Image: Penny Black "Keepsake"
Flowers: Prima
Ribbon: American Crafts
Sizzlits Die: Flowers..Leaves & Branches
Tim Holtz Distress Inks...Antique Linen...Brushed Corduroy...Mustard Seed
Sentiment: Sticker from my stash

and because it's the last Saturday of the month
it's time for another fabulous prize kindly donated
by Dick at PB Stamps

yes a 15% Voucher to spend at the online store
chocca full of the most delicious Penny Black stamps
On the logo it says over 1800 Penny Blacks in Stock
but at the last count it is now over my book that means Penny Black Heaven.

Well that's it for today folks.....time to get the stamps and the inks out and get crafting......can't wait to see what you create with the colour combo this week and will be popping over to pay you all a visit.
Hugs Kath xxxxxxx
