Phew...., and my last card for today is for Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Week 42 - "Think Spring", and I have chosen one of my favourite stamps from the Penny Black T-for Transparent Collection called Garden Friends. For me the first things I think of for Spring is Flowers, and Rabbits (because of Easter), so this image is perfect because it has both! I have coloured the image with my Sukura Gel Pens, and then have cut the image with an oval nesty, and layered the image on pink and brown card. The backing paper is from a Basic Grey 6x6 paper pad called "Blush". The bottom half of my card is pink Bazzil cardstock run though a Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" Embossing Folder, and to finish the card off a strip of ribbon, some paper flowers with pearl brads, and a couple of pink gems. Thanks for taking the time to stop by, and hope you have a lovely day. Happy Crafting X
