Penny Black Challenge

Enjoyed some me/crafting time last night and after browsing through 'blogland' (something I haven't had much time for this last week) made my card for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge, which is More than 1 fold, so - trusty Easel card! I have used the sketch over at Totally Gorjuss and Lemon Zingy from Papertake weekly.
Lemon/yellow is a colour I wouldn't normally pick but I love the clean feel this card has. As usual I have coloured the image with Promakers and added gold glitter to her heart jewellery. I embossed the yellow panel with Cuttlebug Daisy's and used my new MS Vintage Lace PATP.
I am also entering this card in the following challenges:

Simon Says - Anything Goes
Totally Papercrafts - Pearls and Lace
Fussy & Fancy Challenge - Embossing/Paper piecing - Yellow embossed panel
Sentimental Sundays - Pearls & Lace
Alphabet Challenge - R for Ribbons

Well, its obvious which blogs I visited last night, so I hope to catch up with you later tonight.

Thanks for looking, and if you like what you see, please pop back.
