I ♥ Promarkers Challenge 62 Anything Goes!

Well it's Wednesday, and I'm behind again! Real life just keeps eating up all my crafting and computer time. Today I had to go to the hospital to get some crutches, I have to accept that I can't walk without the support any more no matter how depressing it is.

This afternoon was spent form filling, then I had to sort out a couple of birthday cards for the mother-in-law. So I'm finally here, better late than never!!

Right, this week at I ♥ Promarkers we have a really nice and easy challenge for you. It's 'Anything Goes'. Our sponsor is Sentiments 4 You, which is a great little site, with the prize being $10 to spend in the online store.
The Design Team got to use some of the sentiment digis, mine says 'For someone special on your birthday'.
The image I've used is Connie, a digi image from the Simply Adorables collection. She's available at Funky Kits here.
Connie has been coloured with Promarkers (which you MUST use to enter our challenges)
I've masked her and stamped a Magnolia grass image behind her, to which I've added extra grass and flowers with Promarkers. The sky has been done with Distress Inks. The image has then been die cut with Nesties Labels 15. The dp is an old sheet I found amongst my stash so I'm not sure what it is. The blue card is Bazzill which has been punched both sides with a Martha Stewart swirl punch. The circle sentiment digi has been punched out, then matted onto pink card die cut with Nesties Crown Circles. The flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts and has been sprayed with Glimmer Mists as it started off white.
I've used seam binding ribbon from Crafty Ribbons to make a bow with a bow maker and got a bit carried away, but I quite like the resulting bow. The gems are from stash and the cardstock is 6 x 6" blue Bazzill.

I've found quite a few challenges to enter this card into:

Sundays with Crissy Challenge 16 - Spring is in the air
Kaboodle Doodles Challenge 63 - Thoughts of Spring
OSAAT Challenge 58 - Make it sassy!
2 Sisters Challenge 35 - Bingo - Die cuts/glimmer/flowers
