A Bouquet of Good Wishes

I am trying to keep up with the challenges and it’s a challenge just to remember where they go. This one is for the  Penny Black Saturday Challenge found here to do Shabby Chic and the Anything goes challenge at Crop stop found here. Anyone that knows me knows I do not like distressing but this one I am very pleased with. I used a Penny Black image and my favourite colour…..PURPLE.  My newest punch the ribbon punch from Stampin’up and put pearls in each of the little holes.

I am also going to put this for another challenge for ribbons,  but unfortunately the link is on my laptop at the cottage. When I get back there I will add it to my list of blogs so you can check it out. It is their first challenge too.
Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to leave a comment I love to read them all. 
Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.
