Penny Black and Colour Create Challenges

I made this card following the fabulous sketch by Nat on the Penny Black Saturday Challenge
I also used the lovely colour scheme on the Colour Create Challenge
Grassy green,apple green, sunflower yellow, lemon and white, the optional extra was to decorate the inside of the card and the envelope too :-)

The grassy looking paper is a download from Summertime Designs and the yellow spotty paper is from a Bearly Mine CD. I love using downloads especially as I have just bought a fabby new HP CISS system printer ! Brilliant !! :-)

The sentiment is from Simon Says Clear Stamps SIMPLY THE BEST SENTIMENTS Exclusive Set

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

Hi Lorraine!
I love the colors on this little beauty! So beautifully done!
Had to pop in to say hi and tell you how much I enjoy seeing all your 'eye candy'!
Hope you're having a super day!

I thought of you, when Squigglefly announced they were donating to the ASPCA for the month of July...isn't that fab?!
take care
blessings, Maria
