Passion for promarkers #93–DT card

Good morning everyone, – I trust you had a good Monday and took advantage of the last day of the nice weather for this week (I’m sounding like a weather girl at the moment aren’t I lol!).  I hope you are ready for a new challenge over at passion for promarkers challenge this week cos today’s the day.  This week’s challenge has been set by Ida and she has chosen “bugs” (either critters or cars as Ida is mad about beetle cars – she has even used one on her card this week).  Don’t forget you must use your promarkers or aqua markers to be eligible for our prize. 

Here is my card:

I have used a super cute image from Some Odd Girl stamps called ‘Bee Tia’ and have gone for a different look than my usual cards.  For a start I decided to use a DL tall card instead of a square card and didn’t do lots of matting and layering which I find hard not to do.  Quite a simple card but I really like the result. 

We are lucky enough to have a new sponsor joining us this week Some Odd Girl stamps and it is a complete co-incidence that I used one of their images this week cos when I made it I didn’t even know who the sponsor was then lol!  The lucky winner will receive 3 digi images of their choice.
