A Birthday Card

Can't believe we had so much snow last night, but at least its stopped me going out shopping again, and it gave me the opportunity to make a birthday card.  I've had this Penny Black image coloured for a while.  Its called Uplifting Occasion.  The papers are a Papermania Capsule Collection.  I've used 2 punches to make the flowers, and added a pearl in the centre of each one. I've used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 190, and I've chosen all blue because the challenge at Penny Black Saturday Challenge is January Blues.  Fingers crossed that the rain comes tonight and washes all this snow away.


  1. Oh my goodness....I just love this darling image! What a super fun card. cute flowers too.
    Happy to have you with us at SSW.

  4. Fab card - love the stamp! Hope all your snow has washed away now - ours has all disappeared and the sun is out!

  5. Absolutely adorable!!! So there is one advantage to snow, it forces you inside to craft!! We keep getting lots too. Thanks for joining us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.


  6. This just couldn't be cuter! What a darling image - that kitty looks so cosy and happy! Great job with the sketch - a really terrific card. Thanks for sharing it with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!

  7. My best friend is in the UK and she said they got some snow. It is really warm here today so seems strange to hear about snow. Your card is adorable. I love it. I have missed you.
