May Challenge over at Penny Black & More @ Allsorts

Time for the new challenge over at Penny Black & More @ Allsorts this month where the challenge for May is London Celebrations. So what will you choose - Olympics or Jubilee the choice is yours.  There are some fantastic prizes on offer to the lucky winners from Penny Black, Sir Stampalot, Crimson Cloud and Crafts U Love.  You can use any stamp but will be in with an extra chance of winning if you use a Penny Black but please remember NO DIGI's  for our challenge please.

I choose to go for the Olympics and have used this little torch bearing mouse from the Transparency Love London set l also used the wording to make a background. The rings are cut from nesties and coloured with copics then glitter. The rose made with foiled paper and cut with bitty blossom nesties   represents all the gold medals we will be winning (hopefully), the Best of Bristish flag is a piece of ribbon on a cocktail stick.
Check out the Penny Black and More @ Allsorts challenge and see what the other team members have been upto.

So let your creativity run wild with a chance to win a great prize - good luck x Susan x

Meant to say, the Olympic rings are great and wonder why I never thought of using Nesties. When I did the theme a few weeks ago at Allsorts I spent ages re-sizing on the Cricut !

What a great idea to put Olympic rings on your card. The red, white and blue buttons and ribbon are a great idea too. The ribbon on the cocktail stick finishes it off beautifully.
