Penny Black Challenge

This is the sketch for this week's Penny Black Challenge, you will see that I turned it on it's head...........
The image is one I got in a swap from my Funky Hand team mate Kath, who also happens to be on the design team for the Penny Black challenge site, so lots of PB to play with. Thanks Kath!
When I first made this, I put a black ribbon on the side, it looked so funereal I changed it for the lilac gingham and at least the person receiving it won't be depressed for days. I will probably add a sentiment circle - get well maybe. The stamped image and pale lilac mat were cut using my fabulous nesting frames from Go-Kreate.
