I don't normally use much red but with white and turquoise it makes a lovely colour combination. The polka dots give it a fun look and I really enjoyed making this card. My Penny Black image is called friendly tea time 1106K. The butterfly stamp is from FlonzCraft. The dies to cut my flowers and leaves are by CREAlies.

For my card I used this gorgeous turquoise paper from CraftWork cards which has a lovely delicate doily print on the corners. I used a Penny Black stamp called pin-striped and although it is hard to see, I added glimmer dust to the leaves and stamens of the flowers and a touch on the with love sentiment and butterflies. There is also sparkle running through the pretty trim I used. The little detailed Butterflies are from a set from Flonz stamps. The tag is cut from a die by Marianne and I used a border punch to give my paper a lacy look. My card was finished off with some Stampin Up buttons and some white pearls.

The Penny Black and More challenge for the Month of January is " Love and Romance" so I pulled out one of my Penny Black Betsy Bluebell images to use. This cute image is so versatile, perfect for several different occasions.
I distressed the edges of my designer paper, large flower and Cherish notelet followed by some faux stitching around the edge. I added my three stamped Butterflies, lace roses, pearls and sentiment to finish off.

I finished it off by adding some Candi to my sentiment before placing it on the base of my card.
I decided to make a little gift with some of the leftover papers. I found a great tutorial on You tube to make this little tea candle holder box by Pootles. This lady is amazing she makes fabulous boxes, bags and gifts with full instructions on her blog too.
After making the box I added tiny strips of leftover papers to the outside edges of the candles to cover the metal. I punched circles of wax paper and stamped butterflies on the centres. I punched a small hole in the centre with my Cropodile and slipped them over the wicks. I gently heated them until the wax melted the papers to the candles.
I decorated the top of the box with some ribbon, pretty pink iridescent fuzzy twine, a small paper flower and a pretty sentiment. All ready to be wrapped for a friend.

There is time for a reminder for the Penny Black and More "Traditional Christmas" challenge. If you have not entered you still have time to do so and be in with a chance of winning one of several prizes. Click the link above to check out all the details, prize list and the lovely inspirational cards made by the Design team.
My card was quick and easy to make. I used a spotted embossed card, my lovely Penny Black Santa stamp which I coloured with chalk and little swirls stamp from Flonzcraft. I used two sheets of Designer paper (one to cut up for a second layer on the Candy stick) a Poinsettia flower and four buttons which I threaded with white wire. There you have it.
