Passion for promarkers #96–DT card

Happy Good Friday everyone.  I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend.  I’ve got nothing planned but it is soooo nice to have a long weekend off from work lol!  Oh my goodness I thought I was going to be so organised this week with my posts but here we are again with my DT card for the passion for promarkers challenge 3 days late!!  I don’t know what happened but it’s better late than never I suppose haha!  This week’s theme has been set by Nic and she has chosen “white on white”, which I really like the look of, but it’s something that I always seem to struggle with!  Here is my card:

PFP challenge 96 - white on white

PFP challenge 96 - white on white (close up)

I’m sorry that the photos are so naff but I must have taken about 15 photos and these were the best, they were either too dark or way too light – as it’s so white it is really difficult to capture properly.  I hope you can use your imagination as the card is much nicer IRL honest!  It’s difficult to tell in the photos but apart from distressing all the edges I also stickled them to within an inch of their lives, so it is really sparkly (shame you can’t see it!).  I have used a super fun image from Bugaboo stamps, that I recently won in one of their challenges and the sentiment also comes with the image.  I went with a cool blue colour scheme as I thought it would be a nice and crisp contrast to all the white. 

Our sponsor this week is DigiStamp Boutique and the lucky winner will receive a £10.00 voucher to spend in their online store.  You will be spoilt for choice as Sally-Ann has so many gorgeous images to choose from.
