Passion For Promarkers - for a child

This week at Passion For Promarkers our theme is 'for a child', chosen by the lovely Denise.  We're sponsored by Letraset and our lucky winner will receive one of their fab promarker stamping kits.




I decided to make a Christmas card which will probably be for my auntie's little girl Jessica - it's nice to have an excuse to make girlie cards although she's only 1 so she's probably not that bothered yet!

I've used the very cute Hattie from the Cute Christmas set which is one of October's 'offer of the month' sets from DigiStamp Boutique. I've coloured her with promarkers, flexmarkers and koh-i-noor pencils, and added loads of sparkly glamour dust.  The papers and bright pink card are DCWV, and I coloured some plain wood snowflakes to match with a flexmarker - although they look like they don't match in the photos, no idea why!  Scallop borders were cut with my much loved MFT die and I added some black card candy as it seemed to need something to finish it off.

I followed the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches but didn't think to check when the challenge closed so I've missed the deadline!  Quite disappointed because they made me one of their 'perfect princesses' last week, but it's quite typical for me to miss challenge deadlines.

Might be back later to link up some challenges, but we're off out for the day to Wetlands Animal Park so I need to go and get us all sorted now.  Will catch up with you all later!
