Another challenge that has eluded me for some time is Penny Black - time is sometimes never on my side!

The current challenge is:

Someone Special

And I've made this for my Mum for Mothers Day! The image was stamped for me by Jozza and I've coloured it with watercolour paints, pencils and a little liquid pearls.

The backing paper is Simply Elegant pack from Papermania 6x6 - I've inked the edges. I've layered the image onto some raspberry pearl card and then chocolate brown card too.

The organza brown ribbon is from my stash and I think I need to get some more as it is dwindling! No room for a sentiment so I've had to leave it off!
