I chose this card of Sabrina's because I loved the Penny Black stamp and have just bought this myself. Also loved Sabrina's layout but, as you can see, my card has deviated somewhat from the original!!
I went for a different Penny Black image which I watercoloured using inkpads & aqua brush. Made my card horizontal rather than vertical and added a few more layers. No sentiment added as I am going to put this in with a set of 10 I am making for a friend and she has requested blank cards, no sentiments. Pity for this card as the sentiment that goes with it is brilliant!!
Enjoy your week Sabrina!!
Thank you so much for taking a look.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!

How cute :D. Those big PB images don't need a lot of frills, they carry the card all by themselves, but the cross-stitch embroidered design on your paper is a perfect pairing with his old-fashioned looking outfit. Have fun with the bear one - I had my eye on it for a long time but I already had a duckling with an umbrella - so HYCCT was a great excuse to buy him :D.
