Things with Wings - I ♥ Promarkers



Now this is going to be a brief post from me, as the original scheduled posting (which took me an hour) just completely vanished when I pressed publish, and threw me in a right panic.  It might re-appear and I will have a double post, or it might not :(  Naughty blogger!

So today over at I ♥ Promarkers we have  a new challenge theme and this week it is 'Things With Wings' - One of my favourites! :)  We are sponsored again by one of our regular and generous sponsors Joanna Sheen, so its a really fabulous prize up for grabs.

I used a Sugar Nellie image and followed the great sketch over at The Sugar Bowl.

The lacy border, doily, butterflies and vines were cut using my Silhouette digital die cutter - I told you I would be putting it through its paces! :) lol.  It does take longer than using my bug, but its lovely to have such a variety and have the ability to resize them too.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:
