Good morning peeps, hope everyone had a good weekend. It was a fairly quiet one here so lots of crafting and last night one of our sons and his girlfriend cooked dinner.......homemade pasta and a really yummy pesto sauce, homemade focacchia topped with garlic and sun blushed tomatoes then apple crumble. All of our sons enjoy cooking and can turn out a good meal which in this hectic world of equality it's probably just as well.
On to my card for this Weeks Penny Black challenge who have the theme of "Buttons and Bows" which fits very closely with today Cupcake theme of "Buttons and Stitching".
I have to confess to making a monumental ---- up of this one because I was certain my main image was a PB, of course it's not and I only remembered when I came to do this post, so hopefully I have redeemed myself by adding some sentiments using Penny Black Banner of Joy Set 30-036. The penguins are actually Hero Arts K5260 stamped with versafine black and embossed with detail clear then glittered. The DP is My Minds Eye and the trees cut from the same paper.
The snowflake was cut on Cricut Accent Essential then glittered, a button and ribbon added to the centre. The green panel was run through the Bug using the snowflake folder and edges of the layers have been distressed with Tim Holts Shabby Shutters then versamark run round the edges and iridescent embossing powder added.
