Penny Black Saturday #12 - Stars & Stripes

The theme this week from Penny Black Saturday is "Stars & Stripes". I got these spiral bound notebooks from Lidl this week. They were 3 for £1.50 - an absolute bargain. Anyway I couldn't wait to be let loose on one of them so here it is!

This is "Bun Bun", whom I have coloured with Promarkers and Sakura pens. Card is SU, paper is Designer Digitals and I have added punched shapes, die cuts and Prima flowers with an assortment of satin ribbon from Joanna Sheen. The lace is from my local haberdashers and I have kept some cream and dyed some by pressing it onto an Adirondack ink pad.

I am pleased with how this cheap notebook altered and think I might do some of these for presents now! Thanks for looking.
