Passion For Promarkers - mono with a splash!

Oh how I've been panicking about this week's Passion For Promarkers challenge!  The theme is a 'monochrome image with unusual hair colour', and I got in such a flap about it, and then quite enjoyed it once I'd forced myself to sit and have a go!  I'm not entirely sure I got it 'right' though... We're sponsored by Joanna Sheen, who is offering one lucky winner a £10 voucher prize.




To settle my nerves a bit, I used one of my all time favourite Sugar Nellie stamps - this is Flower Girl, and it looks like she's now out of stock at Funky Kits.  Here's a link to the other Gorjuss Girls though!  I coloured her with promarkers and flexmarkers, and added a teeny pearl to the flower on her dress.

The papers are from the lovely Papermania 'Happy Days' pad, sentiment is LOTV.  The flower is my favourite Memory Box cherry blossom die, with a black pearl centre, the floral vine is also Memory Box.  I added a little pearl heart and some blossom sequins along the bottom of the card, with little red pearls from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Running a bit behind today, so I'd better rush off and get something done!  Hope you all have a lovely day :o)
