Ribbons and Bows - I ♥ Promarkers



Good Morning peeps :) 

Todays new challenge over at I ♥ Promarkers is 'Ribbons and Bows' and we are sponsored this week by one of my very favourite stamp companies  Lili of the Valley .  The winner of this challenge will receive an online shopping voucher of £10, so thats brilliant eh? :)

For my card I used this really cute 'Gift Wrapped' image, and was aiming for a  light, fresh and springlike feel.  This was quite a quick make too, as I just used an MS patp on Centura pearl card and embossed it.  I   coloured the image with PM's and Flexmarkers, and the dies are spellbinder and doo hickey.  Flowers were from ebay and the pearls are from Joanna Sheen.

I am entering this card in the following competitions:

Lilli's Little Fairies - Peaches n cream - the pearly card has a soft cream shimmer in the right light, but doesnt show too well in my pic - sorry :)

Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
CES Challenges - Flower Frenzy
Dream Valley - Female themed

Thanks so much for checking out my blog today, and for all the lovely comments I receive.  I will be popping by later, and I will be back tomorrow with another card too :)
