Penny Black-So sweet

Another month and another challenge at Penny Black and More. This month the theme is "So sweet" which can be a sweet image or sweet food. The sponsors for this challenge are Penny Black, Crafty Ribbons, Crimson Cloud and FlonzCraft. Pop over to the PB blog to get all the details of the challenge and support the design team who have made some beautiful cards for your inspiration.

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.
I have entered my card into a few challenges listed below. linky party/end 9th March

I would never have thought of using the aqua blues with red Shirley, but it works beautifully. One I need to try.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

So many little details of interest in your design Shirley - I will start with the fact that it is mostly paper! I love that the flowers are paper and that you have done so much with layers and DP and punches! Very appealing and nicely done toots!
I appreciate that you shared your project & creativity with us!
