Penny Black Saturday Challenge

This week's PB Saturday Challenge has the theme Travel/Holidays. I always associate ice cream cones with holidays, so here is a fab PB stamp which I bought from my local Art and Craft shop a couple of years ago when learning how to stamp. I love the papers, which are so hot and sunny!

The proportions aren't quite right, I think - the image is too small for the card. Though there's plenty of room for the Basic Grey paper and loads of flowers scattered with gold glitter! (Only none of the glitter shows! Really, those flowers are drenched with gold!)

Phew, what a scorcher it's been today! I did the ironing in my jim-jams this afternoon because it was cooler than jeans and T-shirt!

Thanks for looking and have a good evening!

luv, Mags x

Hi Mags - yes you are right. The proportions aren't right at all .. .. that ice cream is far too small to be a holiday ice cream treat!!! LOL!!!

But to be serious your image is gorgeous and so well coloured to match that beautiful summery backing paper.

Love it all!!

Hope you have a good weekend.

Love Jules xx
