Penny Black Christmas in May

Good evening everyone and I am writing this whilst watching Top Gear in the Jungle - boy it is sooooo funny!!!!
Anyway back to crafting and I managed to whip this up today in between the weekly shop, swimming with the two dragonlettes and supervising their play on bike and scooter - not all at the same time!!! I thought it was about time for a purple card, as it is my favourite colour. 
I have used the sketch at Penny Black Saturday ..........

...........and it is their 100th Challenge so they are having a blog hop as well.

I have used a really cute Penny Black image, coloured with watercolour crayons. The papers are from a Papermania Contemporary Christmas pack. The sentiment is from Lily of the Valley.

The scalloped circles were done using my nestabilities out of white and purple glitter card (my bling).

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:-

Quirky Crafts Challenge - Going Postal (there are stamps on the paper),

Lexis Creations - Animals,

A Spoon Full of Sugar - Furry Friends,

Paperplay Challenge Stamp or digi plus bling,

Sew Many Challenges Christmas in May and

Winter Wonderland - Cute Critters.

Thank you for visiting, please let me know you were here.
