Penny Black Sunday

Hi everyone East London is a City of hot Summers and mild Winters, and today we are having a lovely warm Winters day. The sun is out , but not with a blazing summer intensity and there is no wind as yet (we are a windy area of note)
I am sitting on the verandah enjoying the view and the fact that modern technology allows me to sit outside with a computer.

I started making this card yesterday but was booted out of my own house as my daughter Ashleigh was hosting a 'kitchen tea' so was only able to finish it off this morning as we came back to a fairly raucous crowd with the music blaring and the shooters flowing. So much for recipes and exchanging of dishtowels.

Love the Polka dots on this card, but only left a small area for the lovely Penny Black image so I had to reduce the number of critters in the troop.
Will have to do another card with all of them.
I am entering this card for the Penny Black Saturday "flowers" Challenge as well as the PaperPlay theme of brown and having used Copics for the colouring as usual am also entering in the Copic colour Challenge.

If you have the time please leave me a comment.
