Passion For Promarkers - patchwork

Our challenge for this week at Passion For Promarkers is 'patchwork' and we're sponsored by Joanna Sheen so our winner will receive a £10 voucher to spend in her fab online store.  Now I did consider getting my poor neglected sewing machine out for this challenge, but then I remembered I'd got some patchwork digi papers so I printed those instead and the machine stayed dusty!




I thought it was about time I used my lovely sugar nellie Bella Bunting stamp again, haven't used her for a while.  She's coloured with promarkers, flexmarkers and koh-i-noor pencils.  The patchwork paper is from Bearly Mine, printed onto linen card.  Flowers cut with a MFT die, pearls and ribbon from my stash.  The sentiment is a Personal Impressions stamp - I cut the corners with an inverted corner punch.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

I'm going to have a lazy day today, enjoy the peace and quiet and have a proper catch up with all your blogs at last :o)
