Lemon and Lime Penny Black!

Good Morning all....(I made it up before midday today)
Do not adjust your screens...Yes.... This card really is that bright!
Todays card was made with 2 Challenges in mind....Colourcreate Challenge colours of Lemon and Lime meets Penny Black Challenge Sketch..

The added extra on Colourcreate was Spring/Summer flowers so I carried on the Gingham feel with these fabric flowers layered onto lemon paper ones.

Some very bright lime green ric rac and yellow velvet ribbon along the bottom and there you go!
I punched little holes out of the scallops for this one...never tried it before but I think it looks OK.

So the snow is still with us and I think that there is more forecast for Sussex later today which could mean that school will still be closed tomorrow. I think today I will try to get the girls prepared for going back and have everything ready anyway...Uniform, P.E Kit and Lunchboxes. How boring!
I can feel a Spring clean coming on as soon as they are out of the house.

Hope you have a relaxing Sunday...More cards and chat tomorrow...Bye♥
