Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Birthday Celebrations!

This week the Penny Black Saturday Challenge are celebrating their first birthday with style! Not only have they got 10 prizes donated by sponsors but the fabulous design team also have surprise candy!
I've coloured this Penny Black image in watercolour pencils with a splash of Sakura gel pen on the tutu.
The papers are from Basic Grey's Sugared collection.
I've punched out the flowers using vellum and added some pearls. I've also used some white vellum punched with a Martha Stewart Doily Lace border punch.
The keyhole was part of my candy from Sandra. The key is a Sizzix die and the scalloped shape is from the Home Accents cartridge for the Cricut.
The sentiment is from my stash.
