Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Stars and Stripes

Here is my card for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge, this week the theme is 'Stars and Stripes'. I had no idea that Funky Hand were sponsoring us this week when I decided to use the new Funky Hand Minty Madness download on this card!! How spooky!! I love this download, one of the things I love with Funky Hand are the sentiments, they are always so contemporary and I love that you can print them off time and time again! And of course the colours are amazing, it reminds me of Mint Aero or Mint Cornetto! Yummy!!
I did some stitching around the card and added some orange brads in the corner to tie in with the colour of the Hedgies (which I coloured with Pro Makers).
I can't wait to see what you all come up with this week!

Love Becky xx

Hi Becky, this is great I love the colours you have chosen to use and the layout is great, I also bought this download but my printer is playing up so cannot use it at the moment. Sorry about Lisa leaving, I must admit I would have liked her to win
