It's time for another challenge on Penny Black Saturday Challenge and this month its the January Blues. Now I was determined not to do another Christmas card but the only Penny Black images I had coloured were Christmas ones or this one.
Now this image is tricky to make a card cos it doesn't fit a normal square and yet a large card the mice seem lost so its a tall card and my poor brain only works in square although I quite pleased how this turned out.
First of all I have used Winter Wishes papers and the Romantic Rectangles which had to have a crafty cut and added a ribbon strip behind the images mat to make it longer to fit the image.
The swirl is the Harrington Vine from Simon Says Stamps and the flowers are MFT with Bella bloom die centres again from Simon Says Stamps, the leaves are a Memory box die.
Because the width of the Romantic Rectangles is wider than the mice I had an awful lot of white space and then I decided to use the word dies again from Simon and since the mice were helping each other I thought the card would work for a love one doing a good deed.
Whoo Hoo I've been showcased on Less is More for my white anniversary card here.
