Passion for Promarkers - Floral Fantasy

Good morning, dear Bloggers!  Packing has started in Haste!  With only a fortnight until our house is torn apart (literally!) we have begun to try and tackle all the 'stuff' we have in our little 3 bed semi!  I begin to wonder if our walls are elasticated as we have already filled about 10 boxes just with hubbies computer and electronic bits from the front room!  I just have to keep telling myself that it will all be worth it in the end and that it's only a few weeks of upheaval...we'll see!  On the plus side, whilst shopping for plastic boxes on Sunday, we popped into Colour Supplies to see if they had little man's chosen wallpaper only to find that it has been discontinued!  The plus side is that there were 3 rolls from the same batch on the discount table, so little man gets his chosen wallpaper and we get a bargain...result!
Anyaway, it's Tuesday, so time for another challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and this week's theme has been set by the lovely Eileen who has chosen 'Floral Fantasy', so we want to see at least 5 flowers on your creations!  This week we are sponsored by the fabulous Digi Stamp Boutique who are offering one lucky winner the chance to pick 6 digi stamps from their store!  Fab prize!!
Don’t forget you must use your Letraset products (i.e. promarkers, flex markers, aqua markers, tria markers, metallic markers or neon markers) and of course follow the theme.
 We were lucky enough to receive a digistamp of our choice to work with (thanks Sally-Ann!), so I used the ever so sweet Rosie from the Rosie and Dan Off to School collection...
 ...I decided to make an easel card with an aqua and lilac theme.  The plaid paper is one I made myself, the lace square is punched using my Martha Stewart PAtP Eyelet Lace punch and the star glitter card has been in my stash for ages!
 ...I coloured Rosie using my Pro/Flexmarkers, though I'm afraid I lost the scrap of paper that I wrote the colours down on!  (I will update if I come across it!)...  
...To fit in with the theme, I added a mulberry daisy with polka dot button centre, Cheery Lynn leaves and my favourite XCut flower punch, which I embossed on a foam mat and added pearls to the centres...

...I added some more flowers to the top left corner of the image and some on the sentiment on the stop bar, which was cut using SB Parisian Accents.  I embellished with polka dot buttons, organza ribbon and pearls.  I have to say, I really like how this one turned out and hope you like it too!  Don't forget to hop on over to the Passion for Promarkers blog to see what my wonderful teamies have been up to and we hope you can join in with our Challenge this week...Hugs,
Lisa x

Gorgeous card Lisa, love the fresh colours and cute image. Good luck with the packing- I think I'd be in trouble if I had to pack everything away, would have to think of a way of hiding all my crafty stash from hubby lol xx
