Passion for Promarkers - So Sentimental...

Good morning dear Blogger friends!  Well, we're already into April and fast approaching Easter, at this rate, it'll be Summer before we know it and we'll have blinked and missed it!?!  Anyway, it's Tuesday once more, which means that it's time for another fab challenge over at Passion for Promarkers!  I am in the hosting chair this week and have chosen the theme...'So Sentimental', so I would like to see a sentiment somewhere on your card or project...and even better if you can make it more than the usual Happy Birthday, but not essential!
For this week's challenge we are lucky to have 2 fabulous sponsors - Whiff of Joy (offering a lucky winner 1 stamp) and Angel Crafts who are giving away a mixed bag of crafty stash...

 













Don't forget to be eligible to win the prize, 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.

...So, here's my card to give you some inspiration...
...I have used some yummy Prima Fairy Rhymes and En Francais papers and one of my new designs and sentiments.  The scalloped square die is from Crafts Too and I drew around to get the pink layer behind...
...The image was coloured with Pro/Flexmarkers, using :
Kettle - Linen, Vanilla, Mustard, Cool Grey 1, 3, 4, 5
Saucer - Muted Pink, Tea Rose, Watermelon
Teacup - paper pieced and shaded with Honeydew, Pastel Green, Soft Green
...I cut around the edge of the image with a craft knife so that I could slot the sentiment in behind and highlighted with glitter and pearls...
...I added a cream satin ribbon and bow with pearl effect centre, then finished the inside with a printed insert.
I hope you like my little creation and that you can get the chance to join in with my theme this week! I look forward to visiting you all and seeing your wonderful creations!  And don't forget to see what my wonderful teamies have been up to, they've created some truly wonderful inspiration for you...Eileen, Julie, Loopy Lou, Lou, Marie, Nic aka Coops, Shelly

Big crafty hugs,

Love the pastel colours on this one Lisa and I love the shine you've got on the kettle! Perfect sentiment too, I like the way you've placed it right behind the image-very clever! I like your CAS card too and hope your little man is better by now.
