I ♥ Promarkers DT Card - Sparkly/Bling

Woo, its good to be back! :) lol.  What a week that was, first my electricity was off for 3 days, and then my internet was unhappy, and then Mr Blogger had a mardy! tut.

So,  this is my DT card for I ♥ Promarkers this week, where the new challenge is  'sparkly/bling'.  Now I love an excuse to get girly and add heaps of pretty embellies, so this was brilliant.  We are sponsored this week by the uber-generous Joanna Sheen, who's shop I visit regularly and really do buy all my promarkers from! :)  Shame I cant enter then! lol.

I used a gorgeous Sweet Pea image called 'Restless Thoughts' and she was just lovely colour.  I distressed, inked and hand stitched all the paper panels and made the centre flower from a Marianne Die, (also distressed and inked).  The other flowers are of course WOC, and I used a spellbinder die, MS punch and a branch leaf punch by McGill.  Its quite a bit more sparkly in RL too, but for some reason Sakura glitter pens just dont photograph :( tut.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

PaperPlay Challenges - Blossoms and Blooms
Sweet Pea Stamps - Lace and Pearls
Allsorts Challenge - Things with wings
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Flower Power
Bearly Mine Challenges - Die cuts and Lace
Ladybug Crafts Ink - Make own embellies - I made the main flower
Crafts and Me - Punch it out
Paper Sundaes - Vintage/shabby chic

Thanks so much for looking at my card today, and I hope you will find time to enter this weeks challenge.

Hi Alison,
So lovely to see you back with such an awesome card. Love the sweet pea range and this one is just gorgeous. Delish papers and flowers and bling. All my favs. That spellbinder die is wonderful.
Hope you are ok with your internet connection now. We do start to take these things for granted and when something like this happens oh boy do we miss it.
Have a great day whatever you are doing.

Hi Alison, fabulous card, I too love all the Sweet Pea images, they are a bit addictive.

You entered this for our Allosrts DT call, but I think you may have meant it to be for the challenge ? Our DT call requires a spcific individual piece of work.

Let me know andI can soon remove the one from the DT call Mr L adn you can re-link to the challenge post.

This is just stunning.Thanks for sharing this with us at Bearly

Paula said...

The combiantion of aqua, brown & creamy yellows in this is just stunning & I love all the pearls & how those brown branches pick up the shape of the pointed bits on the nestie's border (hope that explains what I mean) - your placing of the lace the punched border & the Nesite border down that left hand side is quite amazing. The splashes of green on the roses are a lovely accent to the yellowy almost greeness of those ivy leaves.

Hi Alison,it's so good to see you back online again.

Your card is just incredibly amazing. How many hours (minutes) do you spend making 1 card?

I have tried to find the ProMarkers in the US - I get a totally different name - any ideas? Would love to try them.

Thanks for giving me such wonderful inspiration.
