Passion For Promarkers - all the twos

A while ago I had a lovely email asking if I'd like to join the team at Passion For Promarkers - I was thrilled and a bit gobsmacked! I don't tend to think of myself as being that great at colouring... I still look at other people's work and wish I could colour as well as them.  So it was a huge confidence boost to be asked, and of course I said yes!

This week is my very first as part of the DT - and what a week to join, as we'll be celebrating Passion For Promarkers' 2nd Anniversary.  There are so many amazing prizes!  Our sponsors include Letraset, Whiff of Joy, Some Odd Girl, The Emerald Faerie, Bearly Mine Designs, Pink Gem Designs, Crafty Emma's Store and Joanna Sheen.  As it's a 2nd Anniversary celebration, our challenge is 'all the twos' so you just need to use two of something - nice and easy :o)  Here's my card...



I've used two Gorjuss Girl stamps, coloured with promarkers (obviously!) with koh-i-noor pencils for some shadow.  The papers are from one of my favourite pads by Making Memories, with 2 different shades of pink Papermill cardstock.  Flower cut with a MFT die, ribbon and pearl from my stash, and the sentiment is Penny Black.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
I'll be off out this morning as hubby's off work this week and he wants to get a couple of things we need for our holiday - we're going away on Thursday to Devon for a 5 night break, can't wait :o)  And when we've done shopping we thought we might as well go for a cooked breakfast he he... will be around to visit you all soon though.
