Playing with Penny Black

Hello and happy Wednesday to you. After a very slow start this morning I have finished the day with a play in my craft room. And finally I have been able to play along with all the girls at Penny Black Saturday Challenge. It has been ages since I have had the chance to join in the fun. But here I am - that is if the challenge is still Monochrome (sometimes I am a bit slow off the mark and make the card too late) Ahhhhh I have just been over to check and it is Monochrome Magic so I fit the bill with this card:
 I have used Penny Black Transparent set called Allegro, stamped in versamark and covered with white embossing powder. Then just mounted up on a few layers of card and finished with some ribbon and a hand made fabric flower using sizzix flower layers #9 die with some bling in the middle. Looking at my card on here I think I could of used some thicker ribbon as it looks a bit bare down the bottom - too late now though as it is stuck down solid. 
 This is the inside view - I have done something completely different this time and used a black base card - I always only use white - so it is very daring for me hehehehe
 This is the lovely Penny Black set that I used - purchased from The Glitter Pot - my favourite UK store. I am amazed at how quickly that products get to me from The Glitter Pot here in Australia. I usually order one week and I have it in my hot little hands the next week!
 Hmmmmmmm and this is some more stash that I got yesterday, opppssss - it jumped into my cart while I was ordering the latest Magnolia magazine from Scrapbook Boutique. I got two memory box dies that I have been wanting for ages. Then this Hero Arts set that I have wanted for ever and  the star circles set from Spellbinders that I have also wanted for ages - hehehehe what can I say? hehehe plus you get free shipping with orders over $90 so I had to get a few extras to make it worth my while hehehehe.
Ok well I had better go and get dinner cooking - it is Taco's for the boys tonight so not much to do
 really. Have a great night!
talk soon
