I love Paris in the Rain

Bonjour! I'm a big fan of Regina Spektor and one of my favourite songs is 'Don't Leave Me (ne me quitte pas).  Some of the lyrics are 'I love Paris in the Rain' Why am I talking about this? Well it just so happens I received a new Penny Black stamp and I'm going to Paris this month! Yay! I love Paris anytime, but I hope it doesn't rain too much though!

So here is my card for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge. The theme this month is Anything Goes or 'Spooky Colour Combo' (choose at least 2 colours from Black, Orange, Purple and Green).
Mine isn't spooky, but I've used green & black.

I used Zig markers and distress ink on the stamp, spritzed and stamped repeatedly, until happy. I added the trees by hand. The stamp is Penny Black 'In Paris'.

You can see more inspiration at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge Blog and I hope you'll play along. Don't forget you have the chance to win a prize and possibly be a Guest Designer.
