I ♥ Promarkers Challenge 6

This week's challenge at I ♥ Promarkers is a sketch with a twist - we'd like you to make your own backing paper. You can emboss, stamp, heat emboss, just make sure there's no dps.

This challenge is sponsored by LETRASET and the prize is a pack of ProMarkers. Please remember, to be entered into the prize draw, you must follow the sketch and theme, and also provide a link back to us, from your blog.

For my card this week I've used a new stamp from Penny Black. The backing paper is made with a Cuttlebug folder, on white Core'dinations card, and sanded to show the purple core. The lilac card is Core'dinations Gemstone card, as is the strip at the base which is punched with an MS deep edged flower punch. I've distressed and inked all the edges of the paper and cardstock with a Heidi Grace distressing tool,
and added some gorgeous new flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, and leaves punched with an MS branch punch. There's also an MS butterfly punched and stamped, and 4 lilac gemstones by K & Co. All on 6 x 6" white Bazzill cardstock.

Papertake Weekly Challenge - Lilac and Lemon - (mainly lilac, but the bird is lemon)
