Snoesjes & Sparkles

As those of you who saw my earlier cards will know I always used to colour my images with pencil crayons....  but I have been converted to Promarkers. I'm still limited colourwise even though a recent purchase has brought the total to 27 colours. I know what I shall be wanting for my birthday this year!!

Anyway here is my second Promarker card. The image is a Marianne Designs 'Snoesjes' and I followed a sketch from Totally Gorjuss challenge

 The silver and white card I've used is a piece I've had for ages and I think it may be from an old christmas card. I used Marianne die LR0201 to cut the border from holographic card and attached some silver ribbon around it, the tag was cut with LR0154 and the bird with LR0137. I finished it off with silver peel-offs and gems from my stash.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Totally Gorjuss challenge 'It's a sketch'
Lexi's Creations challenge 'Sparkle and shine'
The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop challenge 'Add some bling or sparkle'
Marianne Design Divas challenge 'Anything Goes' (my 4th entry)
Dream Valley challenge ''Die ccuts and punches'
Love To Create challenge 'Punches and dies'
Whoopsi Daisy challenge 'Die cuts and/or punches'
Creatalicious challenge 'Christmas in July' (my 3rd entry)

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your evening


  1. This is a lovely Christmas card Andrea, such a sweet image and beautifully coloured. I love my ProMarkers but have now started to collect FlexMarkers as well - I find the brush tips make colouring and blending much easier.
