Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Thanks a Bunch!

Oh my word! I must apologise for this post being sooooooo late!! It's just been a mad weekend and I'm just stealing 10 minutes to post this card and then I'm zooming off again (there just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day at the minute!) Anyway, the theme this week at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge is 'Thanks a Bunch'. I decided to use this cute little Hedgie stamp which was the very first PB stamp I bought, I just love her, she's so adorable! I decided to go for quite regal colours on this card, I like how the purple shades are both bold and faded! I added the orange because I got this tip off Gok Wan, he said if you add a splash of contrasting colour it makes the look more designer lol!! (not sure if this crosses over into card making but thought I would give it a go!) The sentiment is also from PB.
I promise I'll have more time to come and visit you all tomorrow! Monday is the day when I get time to catch up on everything! I'm not sure what I'm doing with my blog layout at the minute, I thought I'd leave it minimal until I decide lol!!
Don't forget to check out the New Dinky Dots Den Challenge tomorrow, I've seen Alison's work just now and WOW!! You are just gonna love it!!

Love Becky xx

I definitely think the contrasting colour goes, you've got to love Gok (I cut his hair once but that's another story!) The papers are fab and I love your colouring too! Have a great week! xx
