Penny Black Challenge # 13 - One For The Girls

I've not done a Penny Black Saturday Challenge for a few weeks due to other commitments, but have joined in this time!

The challenge is

A very cheap and cheerful one! The bright yellow card was from Lynsey, the backing paper from a magazine freebie, the ribbon was taken from a top which has stupid ribbon loops inside (well, not stupid for me as I will reuse it - but do the designers really think that the garment will see a hanger again?!)
Although you can't really see it in the photo, the lettering has been dotted around the edge with a silver gel pen.
  • Card stock: From Lynsey
  • Backing paper: Magazine freebie
  • Image: Penny Black, hand coloured using watercolour paints
  • Dies: Sizzix Round-a-Bout alphabet set
  • Ribbon: From the inside of a jumper
  • Other bits: Eyelets - Dovecraft
