Penny Black "Swirls" Challenge


Finally got around to finishing a card. I have had a very busy weekend - my son and his girlfriend have moved in for the summer and boy what an adjustment - normally it is just my hubby and myself (empty nesters). My son is an athlete and is in training so he has to eat so much - so needless to say I have spent the last few days so busy preparing meals and snacks. I am also not used to the extra house cleaning either so I find by the time the day ends I am totally exhausted. I also work outside of the home part-time. My mind is constanting thinking of new card ideas but getting the time is really an issue. I did manage to get this Penny Black challenge card done today though - the theme is "swirls" I had some paper that was covered in swirls - I didn't really like the colors of the paper but when I looked through the Penny Black stamps I own - I figured I could make this one work. I used my circle and scallop nesties, some green ribbon, prima flowers, buttons and twine for button centres. I used a small circle punch to punch out all the little white circles that I attached to the scalloped nestie and then I punched out four swirls and added them to each of the 4 corners. I used a sticker and added the sentiment. The copics I used were E30, E31, E34, E29, W00, W1 and R20. I added crystal effects to the ladybug and popped it up. It is a more simpler card but I was satisfied with the results. Thank you for stopping by and having a look. I am hoping to join a few more challenges this week.

Bye for now
