Penny Black Saturday Challenge 8 "No Pink"

This weeks challenge over on Penny Black Saturday Challenge Blog is "No Pink". Having exhausted my Penny Black stamps I had to resort to pinching loads of stamped images from Marlene when we visited last week. I have used one of the cat dressed as a bee stamp, together with a PB sentiment. All other elements of the card came from the July ScrapaGoGo "Create" and "Greetings" kits. The papers are Chatterbox "Eclectique" (green paper) and the others are Crate Paper "Sweet Branch" collection. The chipboard buttons are also by Crate Paper. I have coloured this image in two ways...with water colour pencils for the grey and my Promarkers for the yellow....see I really do need some more colours...inc grey...LOL

After receiving my Cuttlebug I am now trying to decide which Nestabilities I need. I definately think the circles and scallop...but which size, and do I need the regular or petite scallop. Also I have been advised to only get the scalloped square as you can use your trimmer for the regular square....means I can buy more...LOL....Decisions, decisions....

another fab card and such a cute image! Copic ciao markers are £1.99 in my local art shop and I get 20% off that if I buy £10+ so that would make them comparable. But they are not the square barell Copic's that I've seen the USA girls using - they are quite expensive I think! have a good holiday, and pray the sun shines!
