Penny Black X-Large Love

Entered into:
 Crafter's Companion -  'Aqua and Brown' Challenge
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - "Say it with Flowers"

I made this easel card for my Aunt's birthday.  My Aunt loves cats, so this 'Penny Black' stamp 'x-large love 3611J - Margaret Sherry Collection' was ideal.  The green and blue flowers and the loveheart pins are from 'Wild Orchid' and the white flowers have been made using the Marianne Creatable ribbon flower 3.   The blue gingham card and the patterned blue card were from Sue's Handcrafted Card Supplies in Heanor.  The image has been coloured with china blue, poppy, cinnamon, henna, dusky pink, satin and dusky rose promarkers.
