Passion for Promarkers - Beautiful Butterflies...

Good morning, dear Blogger buddies!  This week sees the start of school for my little man and the start of a new job for my eldest as a trainee accountant!  I'm hoping that things will start to get back into some sort of routine, as I feel that I have been a bit of a headless chicken these Summer holidays and have been unable to find the motivation to craft for a long time!  My head and my heart are having a battle over what to do about trying to earn an income and some days I feel like just packing it all up, reclaiming my dining room and going out getting a job! (If only it were that easy!)  We live in a very rural area where jobs are scarce at the best of times and then there would be school holidays, etc to contend with...never mind, it'll all come good in the wash!!
Despite my moaning...it's Tuesday!...which means a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers!  The lovely Nic (aka Coops) is in the hostess chair and she's given us a very pretty theme of 'Beautiful Butterflies' this week, so whether it's a butterfly image, papers or embellishments, we want to see them on your creations.
We're being sponsored by 2 Cute Ink who are offering one lucky winner a choice of 3 digi images from their online store...
Don't forget to be in with a chance of winning the prize, you MUST use your Letraset mediums and follow the challenge theme...

...I decided to make my own butterfly images for my card and coloured them up with Pro/Flexmarkers then glittered with crystal glitter and added some faux pearls...
...The paper is from the Sewing set of A Play on Words.
I hope you can find the time to join in with our challenge this week and don't forget to hop on over to the Passion for Promarkers blog to see what my talented teamies have created for your inspiration...
Have a totally terrific Tuesday!
Hugs,
Lisa x
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges :
Favourite Card base and why? closes tomorrow
My all time favourite card base is a 6x6 square because I find you can keep it clean and simple or fussy and fancy and it is much easier to balance the elements.  It can be scalloped or straight edged but it's usually square for me!
Anything Goes closes tomorrow
All Kinds of Everything - Butterflies closes 14th
Anything Goes closes today

Letraset markers were some of my first ones that I used - I have a set from back in 2012 or so and most of them are still going strong!
I think your card today is lovely - such sweet soft colors! Thanks for sharing it with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

Gorgeous card Lisa! Your butterflies are fab and I love these pastel colours! A lovely CAS card that you're so good at - could it be a new addition for your Etsy shop??
P.S - don't let them reclaim the dining room, you're too good a crafter to give up chuck!
Hugs, Karen xx
