Penny Black Saturday Challenge

The theme this week at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge is to make a card for a man, but there is one catch... you can't use the colour blue! I used this cute little image of the Hedgies fishing and coloured it with Pro Markers, I didn't cheat with the water, I used a Pro Marker in a Pastel Green colour! I used my wire (again) but did it a bit tangled looking, I thought it might look like tangled fishing wire!
Can't wait to see what you all create this week!

Love Becky xx

Lovely card Becky, the image is so sweet, and coloured beautifully!
Have you seen the price of the stamp on ebay now, it's at £66 I wish I had money to spend like that, but it wouldn't be on 1 stamp it would be on many!!!!
