Penny Black Surprise-SFYTT Nov 11


I had to take a coloring break  and  go color one of my new Penny Black images. Even though this is really a springish type image...I made it into a Christmas card, because that is what I need in my card stash! The challenge this week at Penny Black Saturday Challenge is Gold and Presents.

Although you can not tell, I have three layers  of dimension on the image and it looks very fun in person. I used some lovely green May Arts ribbon and made a triple bow.  I then added a few touches of gold stickles for a touch of glimmer.

I used the Sketch For You To Try November 2011.

Oh boy, it felt good to craft again!

Thanks for stopping by..I will be seeing you soon!
