Penny Black Card Buffet....

Good morning all...
I can't believe that we are 2 weeks into January crafting hasn't really kicked in yet and my card today is only the second one this year...
The Penny Black Saturday Challenge Blog have a great idea this week...A card Buffet!
Choose 4 things from this tray plus your PB image for your card....

I have used a PB Frog Stickeroo which had already been mounted in a die cut circle and scallop and was just waiting to be used...

I chose...3 Gems(flat back pink pearls,top right),Ribbon (which are the pink flowers along the bottom...It was bought by the metre on a roll),Patterned paper...New Spring collection pad sent as a Christmas freebie from Crafty Inspirations, and 3 Flowers(two on the side and the one the frog is holding up)

I really love the way this card has a lovely soft floaty feel to it. The paper has a watercolour style and blends really well with the colouring on the Frog. I think the light must have been quite hazy that day too with lots of clouds in the sky....

Flowers and frog have all been glittered with stickles!
So some challenges....
1. Penny Black...'Card Buffet'
2. Stampin B's...'Use a die Cut' (scallop circle)
3. Oldie but a goodie challenge...'Bright and Cheerful'
4. Stampavie...'Glitter/Sparkling'
5. Stampin Vacation...'Animals with eyebrows'
6. Paperplay...'Cutie patootie'

I must get up now, as I'm in bed with a cuppa and yesterdays paper.
I have been downstairs and put a dark wash on (school unifom, work trs etc)and cleaned the kitchen surfaces so it's not all laziness around here.
Have a great weekend...and see ya back here soon..
