Thanks a Bunch!

I have a couple of cards to share today. The first is for this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge which is a Card Buffet!

These are the items on the buffet table and you have to select 4 to use on this week's card or creation and remember the all important RULE....that you use at least ONE PENNY BLACK IMAGE!

This was a fun challenge...and absolutely no calories were consumed! I chose to use patterned paper, ribbon, 3 flowers (I didn't count all the flowers in the background paper) and 3 gems. I coloured the white paper flowers with my copics which seems much brighter in the photo than it does in person!

My second card is a very simple monochromatic card...I made this for a Stampin' Up card swap so it uses SU paper, ribbon and stamps! I paper pieced the heart and bird.

Stamps - Greetings by Penny Black, Stampendous sentiment, and Big on Spring and The More the Merrier by SU
