Penny Black #84 & Secret Crafters #66

Hi there girls, great to see you here visiting my wee blog. It never ceases to amaze me that so many of you come back on a regular basis and I can't tell you how much I appreciate your support. I hope you continue to find something worth visiting for.
I have made this card to enter into two challenges. This week's Penny Black challenge wanted a colour combo of Blue, Cream and Gold and of course a PB image, while Secret Crafters had a "Musical" theme. Hopefully this card fulfils these criteria.
The image is Penny Black's "Ode to Joy" coloured using my recently purchased Polychromos Pencils. I really find these so relaxing to use. The paper is Blue Bazzil. The embellishments are all from my stash and yes that is a peel off border you see (well I got to use it up somehow).
I hope you like this card and I would love it if you could find time to leave a comment - I love reading them.
Wishing you a great day blogging and crafting.
