My First Challenge Card!



As the weather is so horrible today, we are having a bit of a lazy day! Hurray - at last, some much needed crafting time for me! I'm so pleased with myself too as I have managed to take part in my very first challenge. I have been wanting to participate in one for ages but have never gotten around to it and I loved it, so I guess that means I'm going to have to push myself to do more. Here was the challenge set by the Penny Black Saturday Challenge team today:

"This week we'd like you to follow this fabulous sketch.
You can rotate/flip the sketch - as long as we can still see the sketch in your creations."

Hope to be back later to day with some more creations!
