Penny Black Saturday Challenge wk 144

Another beautiful day today but as we have had our littles for the day we have not been out in the garden but l did have a really good day yesterday with lots of tidying up. I love this time of year when all the different spring bulbs are at there best. The hour time difference is good too once l have recovered form less sleep.

The card - l am entering this into the Penny Black Saturday challenge and this week it is recycling. Some time ago the lovely Kerry on DoCrafts used brown wrapping paper on her cards and it looked fab and last week my hubby had a scrap left from a parcel and l thought hum that may come in useful so here it is. I was not sure on the card when it was finished and thought it may be destined for the bin but it has grown on me as the day has worn on.

Image - Flower Amongst flowers, stamped using SU write markers.

Recycled bit - brown paper stamped with SU Polka Dots.

Scrap of dark brown paper?

Sentiment SU - swirl stamp found on my desk ?

Pearl pen.

Thank you for dropping by please leave a comment so l can visit you x Susan x

Fab card, love the image and the pearl pens really finish it off nicely. Kerry is to blame for me cutting all the cereal packets up for the 'kraft' card. Debs xx
