Passion For Promarkers - special challenge!

Well this morning's already off to a bad start, with my kettle going pop and blowing all the fuses lol, so I'm a bit delayed getting started here!  Anyway... (and this is a very long post, sorry!)

So many amazing prizes and lots of chances of winning this week :o)  Here's my card...

I've used a fab image from one of DigiStamp Boutique's 'offer of the month' sets, Funtime Dan.  This one is Biker Dan and I've coloured him with promarkers and flexmarkers, adding some stickles for sparkle on all the watery bits, but my photos have made that mostly invisible!  The papers are from a pack that the lovely Debs sent me, cardstock is from Papermill Direct.  The zig zag border was cut with a MS punch and the star is a sizzix primitive star die.  Sentiment is a new one from LOTV, ribbon and buttons from my stash. I think the buttons were a bit of a mistake, I'm not keen on that bit now!

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

It's a lovely sunny day here - seems a shame to spend it in the craft room when it's so nice out, but there's lots of crafting to be done!  Hope you all have a lovely day :o)
