Penny Black & More

WOW February already - where does the time go these days.  Hopefully spring is just around the corner along with the warmer drier weather .  My snowdrops were out in december which is most unusual, love them.
Anyway enough rambling and onto the new challenge over at Penny Black & More @ Allsorts which is
Make It Sparkle 
You can not really see the sparkle from this photo but l have covered the flowers with glamour dust and it is very sparkley, l added liquid pearls to the centres too.
The Design Team have been covering themselves in glitter for this one lol and you can see what they have been up to over on the challenge blog here along with all the details - the main one to remember is NO DIGI images please.
I have used a flower from the Allegro set and stamped it in a circle just alternating the colours and used matching background colours, the sentiment is part of the set too.

Oh I do hope Spring is as you say just around the corner Susan, but our snowdrops are still being very shy.

I do like the colour palette of your pretty card, the grey is more subtle than black.

Hope you have a good Sunday.
