My first DT card for ..............???

Oh wow!  I have been waiting to share this news for days, and its been killing me! :) lol.

..................I have been asked to join the DT for I LOVE PROMARKERS !!! :) Woop woop!  This has long been one of my favourite challenge blogs as everyone knows I love my promarkers!  I feel so lucky and honoured to be asked to join such a talented team.

So this weeks challenge is real simple - Anything Goes - which is brilliant,  and we are sponsored this week by Sentiments 4 You, - you can resize these circular sentiments to fit any nestie - which is perfect.

I spent ages looking for the right colour card for matting my image and sentiment, and I remembered that the very clever Coops once suggested that you dont need to buy coloured card - just colour your card with your promarkers - simples! lol   So I just used my blush PM and coloured the backing card, scalloped nestie and the fleur-de-lys die.  Genius, and it took seconds.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

CLP - Great Sketch
Do You Stack Up - Scallops
Just Magnolia - Happy Birthday
2 Sisters Challenge - Bingo - Ribbon+Gems/Pearls+Flowers
Stamptacular Sunday - Magnolicious
Stamp with Fun - Birthday
Whoopsi Daisy - Free and Easy
A Spoonful of Sugar - Celebrate Something
Everybody Art - Pearls
Top Tip Tuesday - Open challenge
Ladybug Crafts Ink - Anything Goes
7 Kids Challenge - Spring colours
Crafts and Me - Pink and Sweet

Thanks so much for looking, have a smashing day, and good luck to everyone in these challenges.

CONGRATULATIONS. Brilliant news. That sentiment is tremendous & I just love the Fleur-de-lys trim with those pearls. Stunning composition & super with the sheer ribbon bows & tails. I have to think hard about your Goth side when i see such a girlie creation - brilliant having a foot in both camps.

Hi sweetie this is sooooo beautiful & big huge congrats to you on your new DT position so well deserved hun. I love this card its gorgeous. Its extremely rare I do that when matting my cards I dont like it using up my ink plus it just takes too long by the time you wait for it to dry. I like the easy option & like any crafter love all different coloured card lol.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

Wow, congrats Alison you're so lucky. This card is adorable too, really beautiful. You should do some tutorials with your promarkers as most of them are for copics (which I don't have!). You're going to have loads of fun, but don't forget about your other teams huh !!! LOL Annette xx

Oh WOW Alison this is absolutely fantastic news!! I am so far behind with my blogging so apologies the congrats are a couple of days late :) Work has kept me away from card making and blogging all week, but am trying to catch up while I have got a few days off.

Your card is gorgeous as well, love the colour and isn't it a neat trick using your promarkers to colour your card, I do the same with ribbon, got a real of plain white so can colour it to match the card :)

Off to try and make some cards got a few birthdays next week including my sons 17th eek, no clue what card to make him hehe

Have a fab Easter and catch you in blog land xx
