I LOVE PROMARKERS CHALLENGE #26 - & 2 more challenges!

Morning! Well, for those of you who know me, it'll come as no surprise that instead of tackling the chores and packing for my week away, I have spent the morning making a card!!! Heee-heee!!! One of my forum buddies at Cardmaking Downloads (Lorraine,) is on the DT for I Love Promarkers and I've been wanting to join in their challenge for a while now. Well, this week I have managed it!! And here is my card.....
The rules this week are: Follow the sketch provided (below) and use no more than 3 colours.

It was a great sketch to work with, not too fussy, and here's what I used:

  • The digi image is called Swiss Miss Coralie from all that scraps and she is coloured with Promarkers

  •  Papers are by Kate Knight (and were a freebie with Cardmaking & Papercraft mag a few months back.)

  • Ribbon, gems, cardstock etc were from my stash
I would also like to enter my card for:
  1.  the Cute Card Thursday challenge #124 ~ 'whateva!'
  2. I Did It Creations Challenge ~ #16 'Cute, Cute, Cute!'

  •  I would NEVER have put these colours together ordinarily, but I followed the colour combo that was in the papers, and am actually pleasantly surprised with the results!

Thanks for popping over, and have a great weekend!
