Summer Flowers

Hi crafters,

There's a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and this week's theme is 'Summer Flowers'.  We have two generous sponsors this week.  Letraset are offering a Windsor & Newton Brushmarkers set of 6 (Pastel Tones) and Michele R Designs are offering a €10 voucher to spend in their online store.

Letraset         Michele R Designs

I've used a Tatty Twinkles image for this week's card and the gorgeous backing paper is from Michele R Designs from a collection called 'Shabby Pink Charms'.  This paper was so gorgeous I didn't want to cover it!!

I used my MS Punch to create the base card and I coloured the image with my promarkers.  I added some glossy accent to the sunglasses which you might just be able to see!  I added some co-ordinating flowers, ribbon and buttons and a few pearls to finish off!!
Here's another picture to try and show the shiny sunglasses!!
I hope you can join in with this week's challenge.  All you have to do is follow the theme and don't forget to say what Letraset product you've used.
Good luck and thanks for dropping by,
hugs, Karen xx

'Yellow and Blue'

Hi crafters.
I'm back with a card for this week's challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and the theme this week is 'Yellow and Blue',  Our generous sponsor this week is Uniko Stamps and they are offering 1 (in stock) stamp set of winner's choice.
I've made a Welsh Birthday card for my cousin using an All Dressed Up digi image from the set 'Love To Shop' and it's been coloured in with my promarkers.  I added a few layers with patterned papers following the theme and made a flower to match!

I inked all the edges with Antique Linen and added some glitter and blue ribbon.  I even found some yellow pearls which were perfect as the finishing touch!  I tried all sort of different embellishments for the banner - yellow buttons, blue buttons, flowers etc but eventually found a pearl button which I was really happy with!!
Thanks for dropping by and don't forget to join in with this great challenge.  Remember to say what Letraset product you've used on your creation and good luck!
I'm also entering this card in the All Dressed Up challenge which is 'Anything Goes'.
Bye for now,
hugs, Karen xx
