Passion for Promarkers - Give us a P...

Good morning, dear Blogger friends! I hope you are all well and ready for a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers?!  This week, it is our lovely Julie in the hot seat and for her theme this week, she's gone with 'Give us a P...', so anything on your card or project that begins with a P!  This week we are sponsored by the fabulous Dies to Die For, who are offering one lucky winner a £10.00 voucher for their store...awesome!
  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.
I decided to go with 'P is for' Promarkers, patterned papers, paper piecing and pearls, but you could always be a bit more adventurous and go for pumpkins, pirates, poppies, parcels, or even parrots!
...The papers I used are all First Edition Boho Chic - I love the different colour tones in this pad as it always makes me think differently with colour (and stay away from pink!)  I went for a quite simple layout and minimal embellishments, to create a CAS look...
...I used the fabulous Saturated Canary Nevaeh image, coloured with my Promarkers and paper pieced with First Edition Boho Chic dotty paper, here's the colours for all you Letraset-ers!
Skin : Satin, Blush, Dusky, Sunkissed Pink
Hair : Rosewood, Auburn, Firebrick, Saddle Brown, Nutmeg
Dress : Nutmeg, Vanilla, Linen, Red, Crimson, Burgundy
Tights : Sea Mist, Tea Green
Shoes : Nutmeg, Vamilla, Linen, Tan
...I added some little ribbon tabs and hand drew a cloud shape to cut out one of my sentiments and SB circle die for the other, then finished with some pearls and a touch of Glamourdust glitter.  Hope you like my little creation and don't forget to hop on over to the Passion for Promarkers blog to see what my wonderful teamies have been up to - as ever, they have some fabulous inspiration!

P.S. Today is supposed to be 'D' day for the works to start on our house (only 4 months late!) so I will probably be up to my eyeballs in dust and debris!  I have managed to get all my DT cards, orders and workshop cards organised and I'm hoping that the router will be on for as much as possible, so I can still come and visit you all!  I am DREADING the mess and upheaval, but it will all be worth it in the end and hopefully, with any luck, might even be finished for Christmas! (My Christmas will be spent decorating!)  I will be absent between times, but will try to post you some updates if I'm able to get online - I woud also like to thank you all for still coming to see me despite my posts being thin on the ground at the moment, it really does mean a lot and I hope that come the new year, I can get back into crafting and blogging properly!

Hi Lisa, that is one gorgeous card! Love the layout and the image is soo cute - one of my favs from Krista (bit intimidated by the colouring skills needed for most of them!). Great papers as well - got that pad!!

Hope the builders did turn up and totally understand about the mess, upheaval and lack of crafty time - am there right now myself!!! Oh and for me - the kitchen is a lesser priority than the garages as the garages are going to be hubby's hobby room - so guess who gets their room first!!!

Looking forward to any updates on progress.

Love the clean look of your card. Fabby colouring too. Your design is wonderful and all small details makes it all pop. Good luck with your house work! I'm up for some painting here but it never seems to get totally done.
Love n hugs
