PBSC February - Anything Goes (Or Use Some Scraps)

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

'Anything Goes'
or
'Use Some Scraps'

As usual, we are sponsored by the awesome 1-2-3 Stitch:
Prize - a $20 voucher!

I picked an 'oldie but a goodie' to use on my card...it's called 'Present Pile', and I coloured it using watercolour pencils. I had a rummage around my paper pads to find one with lots of snippets...and was drawn to the fun bright colours of this one...'Happy Day' by My Mind's Eye. I distressed all of the edges, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Anytime Messages' set by Hero Arts.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:


For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, including all of our wonderful new DT members, please pop over to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
