Penny Black Saturday Challenge

Hi folks,

Checked out the Penny Black challenge this morning (Stitching) and thought twice about getting the sewing machine out, this afternoon I went for it and this is my creation. I have used some very very old papers but they worked a treat, hope you like it.

Have a great weekend and thanks for looking.

Gill this is stunning! The papers and the cute image is so well coloured and really stands out with being decoupaged. Love the stitching too.

I love what you have done on this card. I love the way your ovals don't go all the way around they add a lot of interest :D

Hi Gill

Wow - I love your card.

Super neat stitching and I love how you have shaped the lower paper around your image. Great idea!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Love Jules xx
