Penny Black and More - August challenge.

It is my turn from the Allsorts team to be the guest designer at Penny Black and More.

The theme for this month is 'Something beginning with B'

For my card I have used 
Penny Black - 40-439 - Good Neighbours

Birds, Bird Boxes and a tad of Blue

I paper pieced the boxes with a wood grain paper and then coloured the flowers to sort of match.
The backing mats are gold coloured and the DP is digital paper.
I did go over the background with some pale blue chalk but the photo hasn't really picked up on it.

This is a beautiful card Kath and you’ve definitely hit the brief. I have to admit that I have a couple of bird box stamps that have never seen any ink as I’ve never been sure of how to use them so your card has really inspired me, thank you. Enjoy your day x
