My 1st Craft Blog Challenge Entry!

Well I have started to get to grips with blogging! (I think). 
I am starting to get organised and get into regular blogging, I have entered some craft candy's and now the next thing I was desperate to try was a blog challenge.  It's a bit nerve racking though! You find yourself looking at the finished card thinking it's not quite right and is it good enough?!?

The challenge that I chose to take on today was from Penny Black Saturday Challenge and the challenge this week is a colour combo - PURPLE ...CREAM.....BROWN

This is my entry

I have used a square cream blank card. Lilac floral backing paper.  Brown ribbon.  I added the purple paper roses and purple gems to add a little sparkle.
Part of the challenge is that you have to use a Penny Black product.  I have had these cute stamps for months now and have been bursting to use them. 
I coloured in the cute image with watercolours - I can't remember how long it is since I have held a paint brush, unless it was for decorating the house.

I thoroughly enjoyed making this card and truely believe that I will be joining in many more challenges like this - great fun and gets the old grey matter working again.

Fingers crossed I have covered everything to enter.

Thank you for visiting and see you soon.
Love Em x
