Passion for ProMarkers Challenge & My Very First Easel Card

Hi there everyone and thanks for stopping by today. Well it's Tuesday today so that means we have a new challenge for you over at Passion for ProMarkers where this week it's turn to set the theme and this week she has chosen a 'Denise'sThink of a Number'

Our sponsor this week is Sugar Nellie and one lucky person will win a stamp.

And this is the card that I came up with. I've followed a fabulous sketch from Sketch Saturday, so I shall enter my card there. I decided to try an Easel card and I'm so surprised how easy it was to make and I will be definitely making more of these.

The image I've used is the gorgeous Tilda which I got my Nikki at Bunny Zoes online shop and of course I've used my ProMarkers to colour her in.

The gorgeous DP that I've used is from the July kit from Crafty Alley. I'm not sure if you can see it in the picture but there's numbers on the DP for the number theme.

Now don't fall off of your chairs but the flowers I DID NOT make this time. The gorgeous flowers are also in the July kit from Crafty Alley along with the ribbon and other embellies. The flowers are actually white but I've inked the edges using Tea Dye Distress Inks

The number 7 I cut out using my slice machine

Only one more day to go over here in Ireland and the kids break up from school for the summer holidays - WooooooooooooHooooooooooooo.

I'm also looking forward and nervous to this coming Saturday as I'm doing my first ever Cardmaking class at Crafty Alley in Killarney, so wish me luck everyone.

Enjoy the rest of your day whatever your plans are.
