PBSC and Oldie but a Goodie and Sunday Sketch and Stamp

Here's a birthday card for a friend of my daughter!

The dancing girl is Penny Black. She's one of the first stamps I bought, must be 3 years ago now, when I was just starting. The Penny Black Saturday Challenge this week is for zig-zags. Can you see the zig-zag pattern on the girlie's top and trousers? Cute, eh? The bp, which is only just visible, is also zig-zaggy, and came from an old mag, and of course I've also used the MS zig zag punch on the blue card (from stash). I think that's enough zig-zags!

I'm also entering this into the Oldie But A Goodie challenge, which wants butterflies. I love the MS butterfly punch! I've stamped them from the pink matting card, ang stickled all over, then curled up the wings for dimension. You can just see the small Retro flowers that they're sitting on.

The great sketch is Sunday Sketch and Stamp which I am just in time for!

The one new item I used is the nestie, isn't it pretty? I distressed the edges with Spun Sugar DI.

The first fireworks are being set off as I write. They go on for a week round here, and by the time Bonfire Night comes around the whole area smells of gunpowder, which makes me sneeze!!

Thanks for looking, and I hope your weekend is going well.

luv, Mags x
