Penny Black Saturday Challenge - August

Good morning and welcome to a brand new Penny Black Saturday Challenge!

Thank you to those of you who joined in with our 'Buttons & Bows' challenge last month...it would appear that you all like using those embellies as much as we do!

Now it's time to announce the lucky winners (chosen at random) of the prizes from our generous sponsors:

$20 Gift Voucher from 1-2-3 Stitch:

#16 - Tammy A

£10 Gift Voucher from The Ribbon Girl:

#9 - Pysselfröken

Congratulations everyone! Please email me (Helen) to claim your prizes...and don't forget to grab the winner's blinkie from the sidebar.

Before I get on to this month's challenge, I have some sad news to share with you...our lovely Kath is stepping down from the Design Team. She was here right from the beginning, over six years ago, and we will all miss her very much. Thanks so much Kath for starting this challenge and providing such wonderful inspiration over the past six years! On a personal note, I hold you (and the PBSC) entirely responsible for my blogging addiction!

So, onto this month's challenge...

The theme of our challenge this month is:

'Floral Fantasy'

Any occasion will do, just include some flowers...either on your image, papers or embellishments.

We are also going to be holding a DT Call on this challenge...so if you're as mad about all things Penny Black as we are, and fancy being part of our happy little team, simply enter this month's challenge, and add DT after your name with your entry.

As always the usual RULES apply, use only PENNY BLACK IMAGES, LARGE SENTIMENTS, DIES OR STICKEROOS, new work only please and link back to the challenge on your blog post
and all you need to do to enter is leave your name with a link to your entry with Inlinkz so we can come and visit you and if you don't have a blog, e-mail your entry to me (address in the sidebar) and I'll link it up for you and you will be entered in the prize draw.

The challenge will close at 8pm on Friday 5th September.

Thanks to our amazing sponsors, we have two lovely prizes on offer this month:

Prize - $20 voucher

And here are the gorgeous projects to inspire you from our design team:  

So now it's over to you - we look forward to seeing your creations!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs from the PBSC Design Team xx
