Allsorts Challenge 307 & Penny Black & More

Hope you are all having a good weekend and the sun is shining where you are.  Saturday again and that means the start of the new challenge over at Allsorts.  This week my lovely teamie Jo is the host and she has chosen
Quick & Simple Does It
So if like me at the moment you are busy with the other things in our lives and crafting time is limited this challenge is perfect for you - l used a background piece that has been on my desk for a while and a LOTV pre coloured topper and just added some glamour dust and embossing powder.
The design team have some amazing inspiration to share with you over on the challenge here along with all the details.

My second card today is for the Midway Reminder for Penny Black & More @ Allsorts my teamies have some lovely inspiration to share with you - check out all the details and sponsors here.
The April theme is Birthdays and we have lots of lovely sponsors - l went for a fairly quick one for this too. I stamped the Iris in clear embossing and added fine detail white powder and embossed it then covered in distress ink, the white butterfly is also from a PB set and the purple butterflies are a Kars punch. I used a Martha Stewart Around The Page Punch for the mat and was quite pleased with it although the photo does not do this card justice.
