I can't remember the last time I made a Penny Black card which is a shame as I love these cute critters.  I coloured this one with pencils a long time ago so thought I would make a bright, sunny card for a male friend who loves gardening.  I have followed the great sketch using various panels, papers and ribbon.  The flowers and butterfly have been punched with gems added.  I also added Icycle Stickles to the butterfly.  A stamped sentiment finishes the card.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
