Penny Black Week 71 & Secret Crafters #54


Friday again and another week nearly over and the weekend to look forward to. Must catch up on my cardmaking, I've had a couple of lazy days this week. I hope you are all well. I know that one or two of the girls I follow are having it a bit rough at the minute and lets hope things pick up for them.
I decided to have a go at the Penny Black challenge sketch this week and when I saw that the theme for Secret Crafters was to "Dig Deep" I got down to the bottom of the stamp drawer and dragged up this PB stamp called "Blush". This is one of the first stamps I bought over a year ago. The stamp was inked using Dee Gruenig Signature series blending blox shades of yellow for the stamens, Momento Grape jelly for the petals and Marvy matchables inkpad for the stem & leaves. The papers are Basic Grey Wisteria and an unknown purple one. The sentiment is from Suzette's "Just Sayings Set 1" available over at Crafty Sentiments. The other embellishments are from my stash.
I really enjoyed doing this card and I hope you like it. Your views, as always, are welcome so please feel free to comment if you can spare the time.
Hugs,
