Passion for Promarkers - Sparkle and Shine...

This card came in the Top 3 at All Dressed Up Challenge blog!

Good morning, lovely Blogger friends and a happy Tuesday to you all!  I have been having a fight recently between crafting indoors or enjoying the lovely weather we've been having outdoors and as you can see by my blog, outdoors won!  We had our first barbecue of the year on Saturday (my little man has been mithering for weeks now!) and I've been tinkering about in the garden, transplanting plants ready for my brick paving and tidying up the pots and borders. A visit to the garden centre was necessary (of course!) for a few new additions, plus we've been hedge and grass cutting and bought and assembled a new trampoline for the boys after my eldest jumped straight through the old one on the weekend!
Yesterday was a crafty day however, in preparation for today's new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers...it's our talented Nic (aka Coops) in the hostess chair this week and she's chosen us a theme of 'Sparkle and Shine', so whether it be shiny cardstock, glitter, diamantes, Glossy Accents or anything else that sparkles or shines, we want to see it on your creations!...We're being sponsored by All Dressed Up who are offering one lucky winner 2 digis from their online store...

The lovely Wendy from ADU Stamps allowed us to choose a digi to work with, so I went with Love my iPad...
...I disguised the writing that is on the image by adding a silver mirri piece on the iPad and positioned the chevron paper to cover the 'Love my' as I wanted it as a Birthday card...
...I really liked this quirky image and thought it would be great for a young teen card.  I coloured my image with Pro/Flemarkers (which wasn't easy as I don't have any fine nibs!) and added some Glossy Accents to her glasses and hairband...
...I used my Clearly Besotted Notebook Edge die for the layer behind the image and added lots of sprinkles including diamantes, buttons and pearls.  I glittered every other line of the chevron paper for a bit more bling (although it did make my eyes go a bit funny!) and used a pretty star organza and cornflower blue satin ribbon with bow...
...I hope you can join in with our fun challenge this week and look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations! Have a terrific Tuesday and here's hoping the sunshine returns soon!
Hugs,
Lisa x

Gorgeous card hun! Glad to hear your getting to do bits and bobs around the garden, I agree a simple neaten up around the edges can make the world of difference to the overall look, although I will admit I can sometimes be a bit lazy about getting around to doing this ... I blame work! lol xxx

A fabulous card. Your image is wonderful and the glossy accents works brilliantly on the glasses and bow. Your choice of papers match your theme perfectly and the stars and gems are lovely finishing details. Thanks for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers. Sally.x.
