Dancing Queen!

Evenin', All! Halfway through the week already - it'll be the weekend before we know it, huzza!

Just a short post today, I ought to be making the tea but I've just finished off a card, and here it is!

Isn't she cute? She's a Penny Black stamp I've had for ages. I coloured her with Speccies, they are so vibrant! The papers are Tilda 'Winterbird' which was a bargain, half price at Hobbycraft!! Well, yes, I broke my stash diet for them, but - half price!!

Cute Card Thursday has a theme of 'Music and Dance' and I'm almost too late to enter!!!

Penny Black Saturday Challenge is to use a bargain and say what it is - well, I think these papers are going to be the bargain of the year!

The Prima flowers and Wild Orchid roses are from stash. The ribbon is actually a stamp by LotV which I coloured, then Glossy Accented, then Decoupaged. Papertake Weekly wants us to highlight a part of our cards, and I hope that fits the bill!

The lovely, simple sketch which shows off the pretty papers is from Sunday Sketch and Stamp

I don't think I've ever entered so many challenges!!

Now for a sideways shot, to show that I've again decorated the inside, with the 2 papers reversed.

Ok, I must love you and leave you before the hordes appear demanding their tea! Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x
