Penny Black Challenge

Just another quick post as DD has just popped out to hand deliver this card for her friends birthday.
I haven't managed a Penny Black challenge  for a while, so when she asked for a card, thought I would make the most of the opportunity to craft while she packed!
I have used Rain or Shine Friends - which seems appropriate considering the weather! Coloured it with Promarkers and used an oval nestability and 'cut outside the frame'.  The papers are Pink Petticoat and were a freebi from a magazine, I distressed all the edges with Adirondac Denim ink, and I used this weeks sketch from Totally Gorjuss.  The challenge at Papertake Weekly is 'Grown Your Own' so made my flowers with punches and the DP.
Challenges for my card are:
  Penny Black challenge - Anything Goes
  Totally Gorguss - Sketch
  Papertake Weekly - Grow Your Own
  Charisma Cards challenges - Distressing
  Crafty Sentiments challenge - Die Cuts & Punches

I'm off for a glass of wine and a 'girly' last night with DD, and hopefully I will catch up with everyone tomorrow night.
Thanks for looking and if you like what you see, please leave a comment and I will come and visit you.
