Penny Black Spots & Stripes Challenge Card

Well as I am back in blog land I thought it would be nice to enter some challenges, so I thought I would start with one of my faves, the Penny Black Saturday challenge. The challenge this week was "Spots and Stripes" here is my entry using one of my favorite images.

I have decoupaged my image after colouring it in with my new Derwent watercolour pencils which were a wonderful get well soon present from Mummy Wonka! I have used a very patriotic red, white and blue colour scheme using some of the Papermania "Portabello Road" papers and some "Real Red" card stock. I have printed the greeting and added some red brads to embellish. 

I had better be off as I am supposed to be taking it easy today as I am off out to a quiz night at the local pub tonight, my first official outing since my op! 

See you soon xxx
