Passion for promarkers #85–DT card

Good morning to all my lovely friends.  I hope you are having a good week so far.  I was well enough to go back to work yesterday (groan) although my back is still not 100% better.  It was lovely to see all my friends at work, and they always make me feel so valued and missed, which is wonderful but I still think I’d rather be home crafting lol!  I’m back again this morning with my DT card for this week’s passion for promarkers challenge.  This week it’s Ida’s turn to set the theme and she has chosen to give us an inspirational photo to use.  Here is the photo:

PFP challenge 85 Ida's inspirational photo

It’s entirely up to you what you take from the picture, whether it be the colour scheme, the clouds or even just the landscape scene itself.  I decided to use the colour scheme as I needed a card for a male friend in work and the blue/white/light brown colours worked really well for that.  Here is my card:

I have used a super cute image from Pollycraft called ‘Cuthbert party’.  I love this sweet little bear and he is suitable for all ages I think. 

Our sponsor this week is Letraset and one lucky winner will receive one of their stamping kits.

Hi Denise
Your card is lovely as always, but I'm afraid it doesn't fit our theme of 'Swirls' and you haven't included a link to us either......
Thanks for joining us at Digi Doodle Shops Best though.
