Oooh Arrrgh - a recipe @ I ♥ Promarkers

Wow!.. Wednesday comes round so quick! :)  

Today is the start of a brand new challenge at I ♥ Promarkers and this week we have a recipe to follow of 1 Ribbon, 2 Brads/buttons/gems and 2 backing papers.  Now I have made this card for a good blogging friends' special birthday, so if you are reading my blog today Karin - dont look!! :D lol.  We are sponsored this week by Sassy Studio Designs who gave us a couple of images to play with.

Now, remember me mentioning my new digi-die cutter that arrived the day of my accident?  Well, this is me well and truly putting it through its paces! ;)  Everything on this card was made using my Silhouette SD machine (except the paper tearing round the image).  I always said if I got one of these machines I would be dangerous!! lol.

I had been hankering after one of these machines for a few years and knew I wanted one with its own software, as I didnt want to be restricted to cartridges.  I took to it like a duck to water, as its just like using a printer, the software was easy-peasy.  It will never replace my trusty Cuttlebug, but I love to have the ability to just create something quite random and 'one-off' without being stuck with a die that has limited use.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Hi Darlin' this card is amazing. Love the grirl and the way you colored her. The shading and the white lines are fantastic. I purchased an Expressions and wish I got the Silhouette instead. The cuts you made are awesome.
