Penny Black Challenge 152 Fussy & Fancy

Hi all,
Well another great Challenge from Penny Black Hope you are all well and this terrible weather hasn't got you down! l took advantage of the bad weather as it was too wet to go out so l put my thinking cap on and decided to put this card together for PENNY BLACK CHALLENGE 152, l used the CITY DIVINE IMAGE from Penny Black, coloured her using my Pro Marker pens, my main background paper is from Summerdriggs then l added others which l have had for a long time storing in my Scrap box, although you can't see much of it l did cut out a border using my Xcut Border Punch, and the remaining of cuts l used around the image, Happy Birthday and the Dark Green chain are Peel offs, l also used lots of Chystal Slickers and Gems and to finish off l used Card Candy.
Can l say a big thank you to you all for the lovely comments you left previously and for any comments regarding this challenge.
Thank you Sandra xxxx
