As always, a lovely challenge which has made up for a couple of slightly questionabel ones on other lovely blogs this week (...must be holiday time! LOL!...)
Always LOVE Penny Black and the stitching is a nice touch. I've combined this with the challenge on 'One Stop Challenge' 42 which is a Pink & Black colour pallette.
Hope you like it!
