Rachel's Birthday & Penny Black Challenge

Hello,  I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend.  Friday night I was 'babysitting' my daughters 4 month old Cocker Spaniel pup, Chester.  It was hard work but he is so adorable that I really didn't mind at all, even though I am still tired today from it!  It's the closest to grandchildren for many a year for me so I wont grumble!
I have been trying to get ontop of my birthday cards so I can devote some serious time to making a xmas card order of 120.  I've been gradually gathering all of the gear together, ready for the 'Off' and I think I can mallinger no longer!   I have no excuse as I have seen so many wonderful creations by you all yet why is it that when faced with such a task and a card blank, my mind empties?!  Oh give me back my driving pupils, that was so much easier!!
Here is a card I have made for one of my nieces and it is a Penny Black image I received from Jules, thanks Jules and I so love it that I have the stamp on my xmas wishlist.  
The challenge this week over at PB Saturday Challenge is the great sketch, although it is on it's side here!
I used:
image - PB Uplifting
colouring - water colour pencils
die cuts - nesties
pp - Funky Fairy
flowers - xcut punches
stash - gems & rubons

Thank you for calling in, have a great week!
