Passion for ProMarkers challenge

It's time for a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and the challenge this week is animals. The sponsor is Simon Says Stamp and the prize is a $10 voucher. I'm sure you will have come across the 'Kickin' it for Michelle' card drive. If not, Michelle was involved in a terrible accident while looking after her donkeys and as a result she lost an eye. If you want to know more about the card drive hop over to A Spoon Full of Sugar where you will find all the details, including how to get hold of the below image.

I decided to make this card in 'cheery' colours as it will be sent to Michelle. I've cut the image, that's been shaded with ProMarkers, out with Labels 3 Nestability and before removing the die I've sponged Mustard Seed Distress Ink around the edge. I've given the sentiment the same treatment.

The side panel is made using a Martha Stewart edge punch and I've cut it from an off cut of the Pink Petticoat paper I used for the background. The buttons are from my stash and I've threaded linen thread through them.

I was going to put this card in for the Friday Sketchers challenge, then realised I'd missed out a piece ! However, I am joining in with the challenge over at Little Paper shop which is Distressing.

I hope you get chance to join us this week and look forward to visiting you !

Thanks for looking
