It's not too late for you to join us Kimberly...please email me (Helen) - we'd love to have you with us for our mid-month inspiration post!

 Ok, so on to our new challenge, this month the theme is:

'One Layer Cards'
Your card must be simply one piece of card folded, with no additional layers added. You may add some minimal embellishments, but your stamping must be directly on to the card. 

As always the usual RULES apply, please make sure that the MAIN FOCUS OF YOUR PROJECT is one of the following: PENNY BLACK IMAGE, PENNY BLACK LARGE SENTIMENT, PENNY BLACK  DIE OR PENNY BLACK STICKEROO. 
New work only please and link back to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge in your blog post. You may enter our challenge as many times as you like, and there is no limit on how many challenges you may combine with ours.
All you need to do to enter is leave your name with a direct link to your entry (not just your blog, as this makes it easier for the DT to find your entry & comment) with Inlinkz so we can come and visit you. If you'd like to be considered for a Guest Designer spot on a future challenge, please add 'GDT' after your name on the link-up.
You can still play along if you don't have a blog, simply e-mail your entry to me (address in the sidebar) and I'll link it up for you so that you will be entered in the prize draw.
Entries not following these rules will not be eligible for the prize draw.

The challenge will close at 8pm (BST) on Friday 5th August.

The prize for this challenge is provided by our generous sponsor:

Prize - $20 voucher!

So, now it's time for some inspiration from the PBSC design team:

So now it's over to you - we look forward to seeing your creations!
 If you'd like to be considered for a guest designer spot for a future challenge, please add 'GDT' after your name on the link-up.

Have a wonderful month!

We shall announce our chosen guest designer for August and the design team's favourite projects from last month's challenge when we come back with some more inspiration for this challenge on Saturday 16th July.

Hugs from the PBSC Design Team xx
