Girls, girls, girls !

I got my knickers in a twist with this card as I was doing it for the Passion for Pro Marker challenge, and it wasn't until I'd stamped and shaded with the Pro Markers that I realised I was looking at the wrong challenge ! Fortunately, the challenge this week still works...phew ! So, the challenges that I'm putting this card in for are:

The main image is a Clarity stamp that I've had for years, so fitted with the ink up an old stamp. I've stamped it with black Memento ink then shaded with Pro Markers. My Bigz dies arrived earlier this week so this is my first card using them. The background paper is My Minds Eye, which is from the pad of freebie papers that came with the Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine this month - fab !

The other paper is by Basic Grey and the flower is also one of my new Bigz dies and I've touched the edges with a brown Brilliance ink and the brad is a Marah Johnson. The edge punch is Fiskars.
I'm really excited about this week end as we're going to see my best friend tomorrow and her family, which includes my god daughter. I've not seen them in months as they live on the south coast, also my friend and I have both had birthdays recently, so we've got a scummy meal planned (that's the diet out of the window!).
Thanks for looking
