Penny Black Cards

I was just reading through UKS and found a link to a fab new blog called Penny Black Saturday Challenge so for those of you who love Penny Black stamps, check this site out.

This card is for my friend who is horse mad and has about 15 horses. So the Minding Shelty Penny Black stamp was an obvious choice. I have coloured it using my fabby Coloursoft pencils and then mounted on blue Bazzill Bling card and then on to stripy paper. Then the whole thing is mounted onto brown Bazzill Bling. I have put blue and brown prima flowers down the side with a blue pearl in each one. The greeting is a Bo Bunny rub on (I am so loving these) mounted on to blue Bazzill. I have wrapped blue grosgrain ribbon and a couple of ribbon sliders.
This card is for a mum from the nursery that Zoe attends. She had a baby girl on Tuesday a week early by caesarian. Again it is a Penny Black stamp - Nap Time - coloured in with Coloursoft pencils and mounted on cardstock from the Baby Girl Nursery stack from DCWV. The greeting is a Making Memories one (rubbish in comparison with the Bo Bunny ones) and then I have added some pink sheer ribbon. I laid this card out last night and didn't like it so went to bed. When I got up this morning I liked it and so put it all together.
