Passion for Promarkers week 8

first of all appologies for not blogging any cards for a whole week , how bad am i !!! i haven't felt too good recently and what with trying to get my lot organised for holidays, it was easier when the kids were babies and i had to do it all , but they like to go shopping for their own clothes and have left it to last minute..... as usual!!! teenagers eh !!

anyhow enough of my waffling.... this weeks challenge at Passion for promarkers was chosen by yours truly and is the colour combo Ruby and Gold and the extra is to include Jewels and Gems
dont forget to visit the DT girls blogs their cards are fantastic.

This weeks sponsor is

and you could win a £10.00 voucher to spend in their shop

for this card i used an image from the magnolia summer kit, coloured with my promarkers ,of course !!

the papers i bought from a little craft shop i found on the wirral, they are so lush, the gold is a mulberry paper and the red is velvet, but unfortunatley they have no info on them sorry, the flowers are cut with retro and x-cut punches the sentiment and flower are also from the magnolia summer kit and coloured with my promarkers
and the gems are from my stash.

DRESS & FLOWER: Gold and Mustard

LEAVES AND STEM :Forest Green & Lime


SOCKS: Satin and Sandstone
