Passion for Promarkers #145–DT card

Good evening dear friends.  I’m sorry for the late post today but time got away from me and I didn’t have time to schedule my post.  I hope you’ve all had a good start to the week – work is crazy as always and I can see this week flying by as fast as last week!!

I’m here to share my DT card for this week’s passion for promarkers challenge and the lovely Michele has chosen the theme of “pink, pearls and lace”, which I think will be really popular.  Here is my card:

PFP challenge 145 - pink, pearls and lace

I have used a gorgeous image from DigiStamp Boutique from the “Daisy – set 1” collection.  There are three images in total, each as fantastic as this one.  I coloured Daisy with promarkers and once again chalked a cloudy background for her.  The pretty papers are echo park ‘country drive’ and the card is from the papermill shop.  Instead of “real” lace I used a lace effect paper doily. 

Our sponsor this week is DigiStamp Boutique and one lucky winner will receive 6 digi images of their choice.  There are so many gorgeous images in the shop that the winner will have a tough decision narrowing it down to just 6 lol!

The rest of the design team have created amazing samples as always, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  We really appreciate the lovely comments you leave for us.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

A gem of a challenge – gorgeous sketch

Cute card Thursday challenge – spring flowers

Paper sundaes challenge – anything goes

Sentimental Sunday challenge – frame it

Paper playtime challenge – birthday card + sentiment

Crafty sentiments challenge – use a digi

Aud sentiments challenge – spring/summer colours

CCEE stampers challenge – 3 embellishments (pearls, flowers, doily)

Paper crafting journey challenge – 3 or more patterned papers

Card makin’ mamas challenge – make it girlie (2nd entry)

It’s my hubby’s birthday tomorrow so we’re all going out to the cinema and probably grab a pizza as a treat for him.  I am committing the ultimate sin and giving him a shop bought birthday card (I know!!) but in my defence he isn’t really that bothered about cards and I didn’t have a lot of time to make one so thought why stress myself out when he doesn’t care anyway lol!

I hope you can join in with our challenge this week and I look forward to seeing what you create.  Enjoy the rest of your evening and thanks so much for stopping by.
