Birthday Joy - I Love ProMarkers GDT

Today is the 1st Birthday of I Love Promarkers challenge blog :)

Wow!  time flies eh?  So to celebrate, this weeks theme is 'Happy Birthday'.   Simples.  Go checkout some of the fab and inspirational designs from the DT, you wont resist joining in.

Now I was feeling quite summery when I made this card, and it kind of fell together itself....... :)  I love it when that happens.  I followed the sketch over on the Sugar Bowl, and used 'Joy' from the Sugar Nellie digital stamps range.  Again, so easy to colour they almost do themselves.  I distressed K&Co papers, hand-stitched the panels and added pearl beads (its a phase! lol).  I couldnt find a way to add 'wings' to this image as per the sketch, so I substituted lace either side with a few blue accent beads.

I will be entering this card in the below competitions:

Sugar Bowl - Sketch
Stamp Something - Digi stamps
Sew Many Challenges - Anything Goes
2 Sisters Challenge - The World is our Oyster - Pearls
One Stitch at a Time - Do it with a digi

Thanks so much for looking :)

Brilliant vintage look to this & I love those soft colours. The lace is lovely - I had an idea for the wings but ran out of time. Suspect I'll be playing a little with ProMarkers - fancy coming to stay for a week to give me lessons?
Much love from me

Beautiful card , Alison! I couldn't decide which of the new Sugar Nellie girls to choose, so I popped in your blog to see your gorgeous creation. I guess I'll be choosing Joy eventually. She has such a lovely innocent little face and it's so easy to color! You've constructed here a gorgeous card; I love the lace and the colors. love it all!
Hugs, Iulia
