Guest Designing at Penny Black Saturday Challenge!

Sorry everyone, this post is a couple of hours late from when the challenge went live... I need a new head lol! :) 

Anyway friends: Here's my first GD card for the January challenge at Penny Black Saturday challenge blog. This challenge is an 'Anything Penny Black Goes' with a monthly optional twist and this time the twist is 'Something New'. I have used a new to me Penny Black flower stamp so I have gone with the twist! I've watercolored the stamped flower image. The background is made with inking through a Marianne Design stencil on a faux watercolor designer paper -I love all the hues of yellow and orange I received with stenciling on this paper that had an ombre look already to begin with! I felt the card needed some black accents, hence the patterned paper and sentiment strip. Hope you like! 

Thank you Helen and all the DT members at Penny Black Saturday Challenge for the opportunity to guest design for you!
