Penny Black at All Sorts - May Challenge

Happy 1st May !!

Good morning and thank you so much for stopping by today! It's the first of the month and that means a new challenge over at

Penny Black at All sorts!

This month we'd like to see "shaped cards", make anything other than square or rectangle. We are also looking for another Designer, so if you are interested be sure to click the link above to see how to apply.

I decided to make a simple circle shaped card.

I used the stamp "Bee happy" from Penny Black. I used papers from My Minds eye (one of the new 6x6 packs) and then stampin up and neenah for card stock.

I embellished with tiny flowers and sticky pearls, punched out leaves and added glitter to finish it off. I used my sewing machine on the strip of gray card stock.

Some other challenges I'd like to enter this to:
I hope you'll decide to play along this month. As usual we have lots of prizes up for grabs from Penny Black, PB stamps, and Letraset! And as usual can enter up to 3 times with a new card for more chances to win!

Hope you're having a fabulous sunday with lots of sunshine!!
