Penny Black Challenge ..week 196


Our challenge this week over at Penny Black is CASE-IT.....
This is my take on Helen's card using the Framed Flowers stamp.  A little bit of paper piecing on my card having stamped the flower heads in the same paper as the backing paper which is from S.U.
Crafts Too embossing dots folder using across the middle, sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.
Hope you have all had a lovely Easter....today is typical Bank Holiday weather..rain!!!!

Oh, very very nice, Anne - I love your paper piecing, it makes the flowers tone perfectly with the background. That shade of blue looks lovely with the green of the mats too, such a nice colour combo. CoB

What a beautiful card Anne - so stylish and classy. The paper pieced flowers are a brilliant idea - so effective with the matching backing paper.

You have been extremely busy since I last visited - one card every day - WOW! They are all so beautifully made - you are one talented lady!
