Green sparklers

'Sparklers' is the name of the Penny Black stamp I've used for this card - it's one of my favourites that gets used a lot.

The card is based on the sketch for A & T sketch challenge 9:

And colours are for My time made easy pretty palette 67:

I used a Martha Stewart punch that I won recently to cut into the DCWV coral textured card. THe other papers are offcuts of Nitwits papers that came with a magazine recently.
