Penny Black at Allsorts - Summer Challenge

There's a new challenge site with Penny Black at Allsorts that launched this month, and the current theme is "A burst of summe colour".

I have made a birthday card with one of my favourite Penny Black stamps called "letters and flowers"
and this great quote stamp.

The background paper is from Art from the Heart.
I have decorated the paper flower with some chipped sapphire (which is what I used for the main image) and a flourish stamp (the only one that's not by PB) and some glitter.

Here's a slightly closer view.











I've got the day off work tomorrow, as I am going to Hampton Court Flower Show - normally I go with a friend but she's on holiday this week, so I;m going on my own.  Should be a good day - just watching the TV coverage at the moment. Wish the forecast wasn't for quite such a hot day, but you can't have everything - a couple of years ago it was nearly washed out!   Stop by my "photosbyh" blog hopefully at the weekend for the pictures.

I'm johnny on the spot today! Well, this is a gorgeous card, the colors of the background are delish... and I love the glittery flower. Still hot here, too, I hate it. Supposedly some relief tomorrow. Have a good one at the show, drink lots of water! lol
