Penny Black challenge 51

Well everyone, It's another gorgeous day and putting my mind to setting up the new laptop is not too appealing. So, as the children are already in the pool swimming and the older ones expecting a barbie, I'm combining this weeks Penny Black challenge which is a great sketch from Domi and Secret Crafter challenge which is the super combination of "Pink, Turquoise and a hint of brown".

My main image is Penny Black 3874K and I have also used 3940F down the side. Both are stamped in versafine sepia and the flowers have also been heat embossed with detail clear. Ovals cut on the Cuttlebug with nesties and scallop strip cut on the Cricit Plantin Schoolbook. I have replaced the bottom flowers from the sketch with a bow and stick pin (spellboubd bead) - hope the two for two amendment is OK. DP's are My Minds Eye.
My card has been photographed amongst the kolkwitzia which has an abundance of pink flowers that I thought matched my card so well.
