Thank you card

Hi all

I don't often use Penny Black stamps for some reason - even though I do own some. This "Uplifting Occassions" is a stamped image I received in a swap. The challenge this week on the Penny Black Saturday challenge is "Butterflies and Bees" (don't know what happened to the birds and the bees LOL!

For the layout I have followed the Papertake Weekly sketch over as it is quite a big image and I don't think it needs much embellishments.

I have coloured the image using watercolours and pencils, glittered it with Ice Stickles. Papers are DCWV Sweet Stack.

Recently I won some blog candy over at Lisa's blog (Mess 2 Magic) and this is to say thank you! She is such a kind and generous lady - Lisa if you are reading this before you have received the card look away NOW!!!

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Sophisticat - Raining cats and dogs
Cute Card Thursday - Dimensions
Simon Says Challenge - Easter/spring and glimmer!
