Here are three cards that Nancy created with the Penny Black "Hugs" set..
She has used a wonderful vellum paper in the first card as an accent called "Floral Background" from Paper Adventures. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
The red card has elements from the Penny Black set and the flower pot has been paper pieced.
The third card also uses elements from the Penny Black set as well as gorgeous paper from Basic Grey - the Bittersweet collection.
