Penny Black Saturday challenge

On a roll today, here is a card I have just made for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge, which is Romance!!! I must admit I only own 5 or 6 Penny Blacks so I was really struggling for this one, I then remembered that I stamped some of Natalie's ages ago when we first used to do our crafty sessions!!! I have stamped this onto card I no longer use for stamping and watercoluring and I am not happy with how the bodies have coloured in although I love how the balloon has coloured in!!! Strange!!


I have kept the colour scheme simple as Rose Red and White and I have used the Rose Red designer papers and the scallop edge punch and made a bow with the gorgeous double stitch grosgrain in Rose Red, I love how the ribbon matches perfectly!!!


The sentiment is from the Seasonal Wishes stamp set.

Feeling a bit better but I think I will have a big lump in the morning!!
