At last, the sun is shining, it seems like today is the first summer's day we have had. I thought I would just add this card before going outside to enjoy the sunshine.

Yesterday, I was a very lucky girl, my lovely husband bought me a new camera, yeah. My new toy has an amazing 10 million pixels. I've had a little play with it, but it has so many settings that I don't think I've done it justice yet with this picture. I'll have to carry on playing until I get it right.

Anyway, I really love this cute little character from Penny Black. I stamped him on watercolour paper first and then coloured him with Faber Castell pencils. I used my nestabilities to cut him out and mounted onto some silver card. The 'surprise' stamp is from HOTP.

I used pink petticoat background papers and just to finish I added a flower and a few pearls from my stash.

Lovely card. I too love this stamp, although I don't have it myself, someone kindly sent me few images!
Great use of colour!
