Black & White and Orange for Penny Black

Hello hello girlies sorry I have been MIA for a couple of days........have been enjoying this beautiful sunshine that I haven't had much time for anything else :o) Up here in the Highlands we like to make the most of it when it's here because we know it's not going to be around for long hahaha!

I did, however, manage to squeeze in a wee challenge today (mainly because I've had to try and stay out the sun today as I overdid it a bit yesterday and am more than a bit pink lol) The theme at Penny Black is black and white and one other colour. I thought I would try a colour I don't usually use and this orange cardstock jumped out at me :o)
Image: Penny Black
Paper: Papermania
Cardstock: Stampin Up
Flowers and dragonflies from stash
Also used: cuttlebug swiss dots folder, nesties labels 2, martha stewart border punch
Well girlies I am off for a bit of telly and a tired today (must have been the bike ride I went on this afty ugh)
