Penny Black Saturday Design Team

Morning peeps a busy weekend ahead for myself always on the go I am :) It's Saurday so that means it's time for another fabby challenge on PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE

Our theme this week is Christmas in July

I love this cutie....Christmas Dreams.......I actually won it on Penny Black Saturday challenge last year so I thought it was perfect to use for this challenge. I have stamped on Crumb Cake card by SU using memento ink and coloured it using  Prismacolour pencils. The BAKERS TWINE and BUTTON are both from SEW SWEET aren't they delish!


 I'm entering this card into this weeks LESS IS MORE challenge.

The theme is ONE LAYER Something with legs, my card fits perfectly.

Please pop by my fellow teamies blogs and see what wonderful creations they have for you this week
and stop by Chrissie and Mandi too. Thanks for stopping by, have a fabulous day whatever your plans.

This is soooooo cute and absolutely beautiful, Ali! Totally love the clean and simple style of your card. It really makes the image pop. I also adore how you put on just a few embellies (like the button and bakers twine) to create just THE perfect finishing touch)
Great card!

Christmas One Layer With Legs in July - oh what fun & I did laugh! The Baker's twine is brilliant echoing that striped scarf & now I know what I'm going to do for kraft cardstock........ isn't the Crumb Cake lovely for the pencils (husband's giving me a set of these for my birhtday). Hope your day of work went well yesterday - mine's tomorrow.
