Penny Black Saturday...............

Hello,

Hope you are keeping warm if it is cold with you. My card is an entry in this week's challenge over at Penny Black Saturday. The theme this week is embossing. I have used my cuttlebug for this and have embossed the stiped paper and used a border embossing die for the top and bottom of the paper behind my image. I have coloured my image with distress inks and added some stickles for the flower and the bee. The flowers are made using punches. The corner is from a quickutz die. I have distressed with tattered rose and vintage photo for the background card.


Thank you so much for looking. I have noticed that you can't enlarge photo for a better look if anyone knows how I can enable this please let me know.

love

Your card is so beautiful!♥
Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my blog! {{{hug}}}

About the enlarging. I'm not sure what's happening, but when you write some text above your picture, it seems to have an effect - if the pic will be clickable or not. If you check your postings in December, where the card is above the text, then you can click to enlarge...

Don't know if this makes any sense to you... :o)

Aija said...

Kim, this is so sweet and lovely! Great idea those little flowers with stamped image and also that text looks so great there.
Pink is allways beautiful :) love those papers!

Marcea said...

gorgeous card hun, love the colours.
Ok, here is how you enlarge your piccie (sorry if this goes on, I am not good a concise instructions, lol)
I always add my card first to the post before I add any text. Once the card is uploaded you can then hit enter a couple of times and then move your cursor to the top of the page (above your image). You can then type your normal posting and then click below your pic to finish of your post. If you add your piccie after you have written your whole post it will appear at the top of your post. To make the image appear in the middle of your post or at the bottom simply highlight the text to be moved and drag to above the picture (do not drag the picture instead or it will not enlarge)
One final way is to upload you piccie at the end and then go into edit htlm. You then have to highlight the code that represents your picture and then cut and paste it to where you want it to be.
I am sure this doesnt make sense in the slightest, lol but please feel free to email me if you have probs and I will try to talk you through it
Phew, told you I would take ages explaining
Ooooh, thanks for joining us this week
