Penny Black's Sketch

Another card? I must be better ;)

Loved the look of the Penny Black Saturday Challenge sketch for this week so had a go - nothing like waiting till the last few hours of a challenge!!!
I've turned the sketch 45* CW and shifted the 'flowers' (shells) up the image a bit - but other than that it's exactly the same!!!! ;)

This gorgeous image has been coloured for an absolute age, and of course with the sun shinning through the window today (well it doesn't really as I'm in the 'no sun room!' but it sets the scene!), I just had to use it.
As I live close to the beach I have a lovely little pot of shells too - perfect!

I tried to get a sand/water 'feel' with the lace and ribbon.
The Ticket is TH and the paper is First Edition 'Hideaway'.

Hope you are planning a fab weekend :)

I'd also like to enter this card into Sentimental Sunday's challenge for this week that is entitled 'Let's Get Wet!'
There's still a day left  if you want to enter this one :)
