PB Sunshine Garden

I am taking a break from Easter cards to day to share a 'sunny' card with you!  I have had this Penny Black image for a long time but have finally managed to fit in some 'colouring therapy' and get a few cards created!

This is such a fun image and just had to be coloured in summer colours - I am surprised at how much I am enjoying yellow - it used to 'skeer' me but I am finding the more I use it, the more I am loving it - funny that! LOL!

The image has been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine and the Postage Stamps Nestibilities.  One of the Fancy Tags Three Dies has been cut out and cut in half and added to each end of the image, to create a frame....I am loving this look!

This card is for the follwing challenges:
Bloggers -To "Die" For
Fairy Fun Fridays - Anything Goes
4 Crafty Chicks - Flowers 
Crafty Creations - Spring  
Divas by Design - anything goes
 Waste Not Wednesday - always "use your forgotten stuff" (Paper and image)
Sparkles Forum Challenges - Mother's Day or Spring
Through the Craftroom Door - Spring is in the Air

The sentiment is from the retired Layers of Color Sentimental Banners clear art stamp set, designed by NinaB Designs and the DP is some Stampin' Up! paper from my stash.....a very easy card but I love how the Spellbinders Die Templates and the Penny Black image bring it all together so well!

Thank you for your comments and all of the support you give me - you make blogging such an amazing place to be!! Your encouragement is such a blessing for me - it makes my day! I hope you are all having a blessed Easter weekend, taking the time to celebrate the real reason for Easter!  God bless you!
