Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Love & Marriage

It's the first Saturday of the month, so that means it's time for a new Penny Black Saturday Challenge...this month our theme is:

'Love & Marriage'

As usual, we have some fabulous prizes on offer from our wonderful sponsors:






$20 voucher

I've used an image from the 'Every Which Way' set...which I coloured using watercolour pencils. The papers are very old BasicGrey...from the 'Blush' collection...I inked the edges with a little 'Brushed Corduroy' Distress Ink, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Sending Sunshine' set by Simon Says Stamp, the hearts were cut using my Cuttlebug 'Concentric Hearts' die, and the little adhesive pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts. 


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
