Passion for promarkers #116–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  As it’s Tuesday I’m here with my card for this week’s passion for promarkers challenge.  This week the lovely Julie has set the theme and she has chosen “patchwork”.  I couldn’t believe it when I saw the theme as if you saw my cupcake craft card yesterday you will know that our theme over there is also patchwork this week – coincidence or what!!  Now I used a patchwork paper yesterday so thought I had better make a patchwork design myself for today’s card.  Here is my card:

PFP challenge 116 - patchwork

I used papers from basic grey ‘Olivia’ paper pad and cut them up into small squares and stuck them together to create my larger patchwork square.  I then added some “faux” stitches and matted it onto black card.  The super cute image is from Lili of the Valley called ‘Maisie two balloons’ and I coloured her with promarkers.  I also seem to have gone mad for paper piecing this week as I paper pieced the balloons with some scrap bits of paper I had left from creating my patchwork. 

Our sponsor this week is Joanna Sheen and the lucky winner will receive a £10.00 voucher to spend in her online store.
