Black and Gold....

I woke up this morning to find I had won last week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge...what a fab way to start the weekend!

The PBSC challenge for this week is....Winter Wonderland. And here is my entry.

And yep...more acetate! Can't get enough of it at the moment. I was going to do white snowflakes but at the last minute I changed my mind and decided to go for a contemporary black and gold colour scheme.

The Penny Black snowflake is called "Starflake" and the sentiment is also by Penny Black. I just added a few Kars bling gold stars to the centre of each snowflake. The big jewel is by Prima. I think it could have done with a few more snowflakes, but it's too late now as the light has just about gone for please just pretend!

I took these shots...not nearly as aesthetically pleasing as hubby's photo in my last post...mind you the sun hasn't even popped it's head for a second today so I couldn't have got a similar shot today if I'd tried.

Well, I'm off to finish my Christmas cards for family and friends...I have got a right old production line going!

Enjoy your weekend.

Beautiful work as ever Sarita. Don't think it needs any extra snowflakes at all, less is more etc.
Wonder if you could tell me where I can get Kraft card. I know you use it a lot.
