Penny Black Cherish card


Apologies  for the poor quality of my card photo. This has been the most annoying card to photograph coupled with the terrible weather at the time of taking it. I must have taken it literally more than 15 times.
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 have entered my card into the challenges listed below.

I always think pink and green are a perfect partnership Shirley and your card is certainly a stunner.

Hope you have a good Sunday.
