Passion for Promarkers - Check it out...

...Hello, dear Blogger friends!  Well, it's already the middle of November (where did last month go?!) and time for a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers!  This week, it's my turn to play host and I chose the theme 'Check it out!', so I would like to see some gingham (yee-haw!), checks, plaids or tartans (och aye the noo!) on your projects....easy!!  This week, we are sponsored by the fabulous Digi Stamp Boutique, who are offering one lucky winner the chance to win a £10.00 voucher for their store and with so many amazing digistamps to choose from, I'm sure it will easily be spent! 


 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.

...For my card, I had permission from the ever so talented Katina Killey, to case one of her cards!  I saw this fabulous card for her granddaughter Molly and fell in love with the CAS style!  I have to say, I love Katina's cards for her fabulous clean and simple layouts, great paper piecing and brilliant colouring, and I always find some sort of inspiration when I visit her blog!  Thanks so much, Katina!  So, here it is...
...I decided to go with a pink and green colour combo and used a green gingham paper from Nitwits Cherry Blossoms papers matted onto pink cardstock...
 ...I added a few embellishments to my design with pink gingham ribbon and bow, metal flower charm, pearls and a hint of glitter on the roses...

 ...The gorgeous image is Whimsy stamp's Wee Florist (I just adore this digi!) and she was coloured using my Pro and Flexmarkers, as usual!  Here's the list of colours I used :
Skin - Satin, Blush, Dusky, Sunkissed Pink & Coral
Hair - Linen, Champagne, Sandstone, Nutmeg
Top - Muted Pink, Tea Rose, Watermelon, Meadow, Leaf & Bright Green
Trousers - Pastel Beige, Soft Khaki, Khaki
Shoes - Antique White, Tan, Shale, Umber
Bucket - Cool Grey 1, 3 & 4
Roses - Pear, Olive Green, Cerise, Vermillion, Burgundy
 ...I cut out my image, leaving a small white border and attached using foam pads for a touch of dimension...
 ...I added an insert inside and decorated it to match with the gingham paper, sentiment and bucket of roses image!  Et voila!
Hope you like my little CAS card and that you can join in with my theme this week - I look forward to visiting you all and seeing your wonderful creations!  And don't forget to hop on over to the Passion for Promarkers blog to see what wonderful inspiration my talented teamies have come up with!  Thanks for dropping by!  
Hugs,

Your CAS card is beautiful Lisa, I love the adorable image and the way you incorporated the ribbon. I do not use ribbon so much, because I have not found I good way to get the ribbon attached to my cards properly. Very pretty card.
