This weeks challenge at passion for promarkers is set by Caroline one of our talented guest designers and she has chosen the lovely combo of Sandstone and Blue Pearl

this week we have been very kindly sponsored by

the fabulous prize is £10 of digi downloads of your choice
SallyAnn very kindly gave all the design team a digi download to create their cards with this week, she has some gorgeous images and it was a hard choice to make but i finally settled on 'milly with flowers'

i've had to change the paper i normally use for this card as my usual card from the papermill would not go in my printer Grrrrr !!! so i used IQ smooth from staples and after a bit of practice to get used to it i am quite liking it . the image is colored with my promarkers and cut with nesties the papers are forever friends , the edges have been inked with distress ink and the flowers cut with a retro punch the brads are papermania the spacers from ebay the pearls are papermania, the ribbon is from my stash and the charm was a rak from a friend x the martha stewart doily punch has also had an outing .

The Promarker colours used are:

Mouse: Sandstone and Cinnamon

Dress: Blue pearl and Cornflower

Flowers: Lemon and Blue Pearl

Basket: Cinnamon

Shadows: Warm Grey 1-5

Thanks for popping in

Hi Helen,
I love this card. The colours go so well together and that little mouse is so cute. I love the scalloped card on which she is mounted and that charm is fab.
