Passion for promarkers #123–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  I trust you all had a good Monday – mine was great - work whizzed by for me, which is always a good thing.  I had to take my son to the doctors for a routine check up and then called in to see my parents but it was so wet and windy here that as soon as I came home I snuggled in my PJ’s and didn’t set foot outside the door again – a perfect evening in my book lol!  I hope you managed to avoid the terrible downpours we seem to be having at the moment. 

As it’s Tuesday it’s time for a brand new challenge over at passion for promarkers challenge.  This week I had the honour of setting the theme and I chose “for a child” and I don’t mind what you make as long as it’s age appropriate for a child.  Here is my card:

PFP challenge 123 - for a child

Now even though it is a baby card I think it can still be classed as a card for a child!!  Well it’s my challenge so I’m accepting baby card entries this week lol!  I made this card for a friend in work who’s daughter has just had her first baby – a little boy named Sonny.  My friend wanted a card that could also be framed as a keepsake and so I bought this adorable sugar nellie stamps digi image especially.  Isn’t it just the most beautiful baby image ever!  Even though it doesn’t look like it’s coloured that much I seemed to tinker with the colouring for ages but I’m quite happy with the finished image. I used both promarkers and flex markers to colour it.  I kept the card relatively flat (in case it was framed) and the layout is fairly uncluttered, which is unusual for me. 

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