Good morning to all you lovely people. I hope your weather is better than ours, at the moment it is pouring with rain.
My card today uses the image "Greetings" by Penny Black coloured as usual with promarkers I then distressed and stickled the edges, the backing paper is from Pink Petticoat, I have used the Marianne Creatables leaf die again.The rest is from my stash. I do hope you like
