Sugar Bowl challenge card

My second card for tonight is for this week's Sugar Bowl challenge and is also for my Mum's birthday so I hope she doesn't look at this post!!

I followed the sketch using the lovely Fragile Beauty image coloured with promarkers. There was also a 'please include' to use some sort of sparkle or bling, so I added a pearl brad for my flower (cut with cuttlebug nested dies) and some pink adhesive gems.

Well, I think that's it for now as I still need to finish sorting things out to go away!! Have a good few weeks everyone!!

Thanks for looking!!

Passion for Promarkers challenge

Hi everyone!!
Hope you're enjoying the weekend!! It's the begining of the school holidays here in Scotland and it's been perfect weather for it. I've had a crazy few days getting things ready as I'm taking my girls to visit my parents for a few weeks. Managed a couple of cards though!!!
My first card tonight is for the Passion for Promarkers challenge. I'm loving my promarkers and will miss doing these challenges for a few weeks - will have to take my pens with me and practice my colouring in!!!

Anyway, the challenge this week was to use the colours Moss Green and Poppy and also include something 'tasty'.

I made this card for a friend to give to her Godson. I'd already coloured the image when I saw the 'tasty' inclusion, so I coloured this sparkly cake to go with it!!!

Thanks for looking!!

Sugar Bowl challenge card

Well, this is certainly a last minute entry!! This card is for the current Sugar Bowl sketch challenge and for my sister-in-law's birthday. I followed the sketch and also the card had to include kraft paper or brown and cream colours.

I used some brown paper for the backing which I think is kraft paper (but maybe isn't!!!). Also used lots of brown and cream card from my stash.

The gorjuss girl was coloured with my promarkers. The metal charms were from Mad About Cards I think.
I was very pleased with my bargain enormous silk flowers!! I was in Tesco yesterday and they had some gerbora sprays in their £1 section (to go in some little glass vases they were selling). I bought them in cream, dark pink and black then took them apart when I got home. Bargain!!!
Thanks for looking!!
