Spring colours

 Here's a card I made up for Sarah at S J Crafts using my new limited edition spring promarkers and  MME Howdy Doody 6x6 pad. My card would fit nicely into this months challenge at S J Crafts which is flowers.
The image is a Lili of the Valley one which was free with one of the craft magazines a while ago. I used my promarkers to add colour to the paper lace as well as the image.

 I have inked the edges of the card with Antique Linen Distress ink and used Nesties to cut round the image and also to create the flower which is finished with a pearl. The swirl is a Marianne die and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and has been inked with the distress ink.
Promarkers used:
Hair - Vanilla, sandstone, caramel.
Top/ flowers - soft peach, peach
Top - daffodil bloom, pastel yellow, mustard
Skin - ivory, blush, oatmeal
Leaves - fresh meadow, soft green
Cat - cool grey 1,2,3
Flowers & flower pot - dusky pink, march hare, sunkissed pink, coral
Wall - pastel beige
Antique white for blending and pastel blue around the image.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafts & Me - Shades of Spring
Paper Pretties - Die cuts & punches
Simon Says Stamp - 3 different papers
