Penny Black Spring

Hello there! It's the first Saturday of the month, so that means we're staring a new Penny Black Saturday Challenge.

Firstly, some DT news. We are very excited to have 3 new incredibly talented peeps joining our team this month. A huge welcome to Helen (Moments of Crafting), Kylie (Addicted to Stamps), and Milla (Mustesormi)

This month's theme is as always 'ANYTHING GOES' or 'THINK SPRING'.

I stamped the flowers with Stazon ink on to Acrylic cardstock. This card is the perfect substrate for blending Zig Markers, without water. I can't remember the name of the stamp and will add it when I find it. The sentiment is from PB 'Sprinkle and Smiles'.

Edited: the stamp is called PB 'Softly' (thanks L0ll!)

The prize for this challenge is provided by our generous sponsor

Prize - $20 voucher!

If you'd like to be considered for a guest designer spot for a future challenge, please add 'GDT' after your name on the link-up...and remember to check back to see if you've been chosen!

 You can see more inspiration from our talented Guest Designer, Sharon H and the rest of the DT at our blog. I hope you have the opportunity to join in our challenge.

I'm sharing my card at the following challenges:-
