Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 145

Morning folks...yes it's Saturday once again and time to join in the fun over at Penny Black Saturday....loved all the bits and pieces you managed to use in your Recycled cards last week....not only are you all fabulous card makers but green with it.  Apologies that I didn't manage to get round to leaving you all comments last week....time just ran out on me....sorry.
The challenge this week is a fabulous sketch from our lovely teamie DOMI and we know how you all love a great sketch....

Papers: Prima 6 x 6 Pad...Botanical
Image: Penny Black....Sealed With a Kiss
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts...edged with Distress Ink...Aged Mahogany
Scallops: Fiskars Large Heart Punch
Ovals....Fiskars Shapecutter
Pearls: Hobby House
Sentiment: Hero Arts....Birthday Wishes
Finished off with a little bit of stitching which caused me no amount of trouble....see yesterday's post and by the time I got the sewing sorted out I'd had enough of machines so instead of firing up the Cricut I cut the ovals out with my trusty Shapecutter....much faster and less hassle.
We have two fabulous prizes this week

3876 J Hibiscus

gorgeous Cream & White Ribbon Kit

And even more good news....we have a brand new guest designer for the month of April....the lovely and very talented Sylvie sharing her inspiration with us all the way from pop on over and give her a great big Penny Black welcome and also check out the gorgeous cards from the girls on the Design Team.
Have a great weekend and happy crafting everyone
