Autumn Birthday

We have another fabulous challenge for you this week and it is rather fitting the weather we have been having recently....


As always you can create a card....altered art..bag...notebook...scrapbook layout...etc ...the only RULE being that you use at least one Penny Black image or sentiment.
If you don't have any Autumny Penny Blacks......don't worry....just go with autumn colours
And we have a fabulous prize for one lucky winner this week very generously donated by our lovely teamie CAROLE

I thought I was going to be stuck on this one as I don't own an even remotely autumnal Penny Black, but after I had chosen to use these delicious Bo Bunny Paper from The Hobby House, this vintage PB Xmas stamp showed promise, and I must admit I am pleased with the result. I have used copics to colour the image (and have just realised I have left a little square on the blue balloon uncoloured, Doh!!). I have mounted all the papers and image onto dark brown card, the leaves have been punched with a MS Branch Punch from the same card. I am not sure where the large flower came from, the spacer and pearl brad didn't really match the flower very well so I coloured both with a dark brown copic.

Don't forget to pop over to Whiff of Joy challenge Blog at 11am this morning to start our Whiff of Joy Birthday Blog Hop, the DT are all offering a little Candy of their own on the Hop and Katharina has donated a fantastic prize for one lucky winner. Hope to see you at 11am.

Thanks for looking
Jacqui xx

Hi Jacqui,
Love this! I have come to realise that I may have to stop visiting your blog. Only kidding!! It's just that practically all the stamps you use, I then want to buy for myself & it's going to get really expensive. Do you think my boys would mind if they got stamps for Xmas this year?! LOL!! Do you have the name of this stamp, I have admired it before & don't know how to start looking to see if it is available anywhere. Hope you are feeling a lot better now. Your cards certainly don't seem to be suffering!
Big hugs,
Andie xx

Great job on this one, Jacqui. So clever to use autumn colors on your image and to "custom color" your flower centers.
