Passion for promarkers #125–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  I hope you all had a good start to the week.  Mine went super fast as it usually does, as Monday is one of our busiest days in work.  Boy wasn’t it chilly though, definitely getting colder in the mornings – I may have to dig out my coat – I’m trying to last it as long as possible as I hate wearing a coat to work!! 

Anyway enough of my rambling I’m here this morning with my card for this week’s passion for promarkers challenge.  This week the lovely Julie has set the theme and she has chosen ‘kraft + 1 other colour’, you can use a tiny smidge of other colours on your images but the background must be only kraft and your chosen extra colour.  Here is my card:

PFP challenge 125 - kraft   1 other

I have used a brand new image from DigiStamp Boutique from the ‘cute Santa collection’ which is one of 3 ‘offers of the month’ for November and available at a bargain price – so grab it whilst you can at the offer price.  I coloured the cute little Santa with flex markers and promarkers and added flower soft to his hat band and bobble.  The papers are a mix – the gingham paper is a really old piece from a pack I got from Joanna Sheen when I first starting crafting and the holly paper is dovecraft from the ‘back to basic Christmas’ paper pack.  The buttons were cut out using a die-namics die.  The dotty organza ribbon was originally white but I coloured it with my flex marker to match my card. 

Our sponsor this week is Some Odd Girl and one lucky winner will receive 3 digi images of their choice from their online store.
