A Penny Black Summer Hop


Penny Black Saturday Challenge has had a revamp so to celebrate we having a blog hop with some fab prizes from out Sponsors and some of the team have candy too. Now I already have a Penny Black stamp set as candy (see this post here) but I think I can find a bundle of ribbon and flowers as a little prize so just in case the blue frog can't cope with two of themselves I will add Mr Linky.
So the challenge this month is for Summer and since that has deserted us here in the UK we've added the living is easy.
But I do think the sun was shining at the time I made this card, its disappeared since. I've used the cute Bumble Bee Puddy cat and I knew I had to use the yellow gingham paper from a set of Echo Park. Once I decided I was going to make a Sun none of the papers allowed the yellow to show up, so in the end I used the swiss dots embossing folder.
I'm going to have to find some more black gingham ribbon if I keep using it but it worked perfectly with the bumble bee outfit. Had to used daisies, made from Woodware punches and the leaves are Cheery Lyn.
Back to the Hop now I hope you arrived from Beth and from me you need to hop, skip and jump over to
Lost then pop over to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge to start at the beginning.
