Inspired by a Song PBSC

It's the first Saturday of May, so that means it's time for a new Penny Black Saturday Challenge.

The theme is Anything goes or optional 'Inspired by a Song'.

I've chosen 'Supermarket Flowers' by Ed Sheeran, which is an emotional song he wrote about his Grandmother.

I haven't used this gorgeous PB Iris die for a while and I decided to use a smooshed background I made with Cosmic Shimmer Powder. I also added Silver Wink of Stella to the black stems so there's lots of shimmer on this card.  The sentiment is from PB 'Banner Sentiments' and the frame die from MFT. I'm not sure about the embossing folder. 

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!

 We have the talented Andrea from K and A Creative Moments as our Guest Designer this month. 
You can see her card and more inspiration from our talented Design Team at our blog. I hope you are inspired to join in our challenge.

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