Passion for promarkers #78 - DT card

Hello again friends.  I’m back this morning with my DT card for this week’s passion for promarkers challenge.  This week’s theme has been set by Sue C and she has chosen “stitching & distressing” (your stitching can be faux or real, it’s up to you).  Don’t forget to qualify for our prize draw you must use your promarkers or aqua markers.  I wasn’t feeling 100% when I made my card so I went for a Clean and Simple style, which is completely different to my usual type of card.  I have to say I quite like the finished card.  It’s only a dinky 4 x 4 card but I think I will probably make a few more of these as it took about 15 minutes from start to finish lol!  Here is my card:

What do you think?  I really like the image – it’s from Elzybells and it’s the first time I’ve used it.  I love this colour scheme, very striking I think.  It looks much better IRL (as usual my photography skills are not the best).  I have used a black gen pen to create the “stitching” and distressed the edges of my card with my scissors. 

Our sponsor this week is Stampeezee and the lucky winner will receive a £10.00 voucher to spend in their online shop.
