Challenge 365 'Spots and/or Stripes'

Hi crafters,

There's another great challenge over at Passion for Promarkers this week and the theme is 'Spots and/or stripes'. 
We are kindly sponsored this week by Uniko Stamps and they are offering 1 stamp set of the winner's choice.
I've used both spots and stripes on my card this week! I absolutely love polka dots but I love stripey paper too and couldn't decide which to use, so I used both!!
I've used a gorgeous Stamping Bella image called 'Uptown Girl Posh Has A Present' and she's been coloured in with my Promarkers. I added a die cut flower and some punched flowers which I love making at the moment and I'm adding them to all my cards!
I added a die cut border to the stripey paper and some ribbon too and added glitter to the swirly dies!  Some pearls and the sentiment were the finishing touch for this girly card and I hope they like it!

So why not have a go and enter this week's challenge.  Don't forget to use your Letraset products and follow the theme.
See you soon,
Karen xx

'Favourite Colour Combo'

Hi crafters,
It's a great new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers this week.  The theme is 'Favourite Colour Combo' so whether it's pink and brown, red and blue or yellow and white - you choose!
We are kindly sponsored by Digi Stamp Boutique who are offering the lucky winner a £10.00 voucher to spend in their on-line store and there are some fantastic digis to choose from!
My card has been made using one of their images from a set called 'Edwin and Hetty' and it was a fab image to colour in!  I've used a mix of my promarkers and flexmarkers and kept the colouring quite light.
My favourite colour combo is pink and grey - my front room is decorated in these colours as well!!
I've embossed the base card and added some checked and polka dot papers,  I couldn't find any grey card in the right shade so I remembered a trick we've been taught in my workshop and used the same promarkers that I used on the image, to colour the card to mount the image and papers on!!
I added some punched flowers, ribbon and swirly die cuts as well as some pearls for the finishing touch!  Oh and some glitter on the little pink heart, of course!!
I hope you can join in with this week's challenge at Passion for Promarkers,  Don't forget to use your Letraset products and let us know where you've used them on your creation.
Thanks for dropping by!
Hugs, Karen xx
