Passion For Promarkers - no patterned papers

Our new challenge at Passion For Promarkers for this week is 'no patterned papers' and we're sponsored by Whiff of Joy who are providing some lovely new stamps for our winner :o)  For some reason I struggled with this challenge - no idea why because I make loads of cards with no papers!  I kept trying different things and in the end went for something very simple...



I love this pretty Flower Girl gorjuss stamp, she's one of my favourites.  I've coloured her with promarkers, flexmarkers and koh-i-noor pencils.  I cut a border on the base card and also on some blue core'dinations using the MS scallop dot punch.  Ribbon and button from my stash, flower cut with a x-cut punch.

I've noticed something very strange over the last couple of days... you know the little feedjit 'traffic feed' thing that tells you where your visitors are coming from?  Well at the moment when I visit a blog it says I'm in Stoke-on-Trent!  Slightly confused because I'm definitely in Sheffield... and until recently feedjit always got that right - so why has it suddenly decided I've moved?!

Weird about Feedjit. I have it on my blog, but I admit, I rarely look at it!

Sarpreet said...

gorgeous card - i find that weird about the site that says you are in a different area, i think it has something to do with your ip address as mine says that I am in a neighbouring town, and i am not!
