Passion for Promarkers - Oh Baby!...

Good morning, wonderful Blogger friends and a Happy Tuesday to you all!  Today is the start of a brand new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers, with Team 1 on duty and the lovely Shelly setting the theme for us this week which is 'Oh Baby!'.  (Shelly had a little girl of her own (Darcie) in July, so this theme was a bit of a no-brainer really!)...

This week we are sponsored by the amazing Letraset who are offering one lucky winner a set of 6 Metallic Markers - perfect for all those Christmas creations you'll be making!

Don't forget, to be elligible to win the prize, you must use your Letraset markers and follow the theme.

...I decided to make a shaped card base for my card this week and dug out my Go Kreate Frilly Frame #2 dies.  I went with a mainly blue with a hint of yellow colour scheme, using the baby boy papers from A Year in Cards and pierced and inked the edges with Stormy Sky DI...
...I used the ever so cute Wee Birthday Baby Boy image and coloured him with my Pro/Flexmarkers.  Here's the colour list I used :
Skin - Blush, Dusky Pink, Coral
Hair - Buttercup. Champagne, Sandstone
Romper suit - Glacier, Powder, Cloud Blue, Tan, Primrose, Buttercup
Cake - Vanilla, Shale, Umber
Mouse - Satin, Tan, Blush, Dusky Pink
Cherry - Shocking Pink, Vermillion, Maroon
The image is highlighted with crystal glitter and Liquid Pearls in White and Bisque...
 ...I punched some flowers using a Make Me star flower and XCut mini blossom punch, inked and shaped and added diamante or pearl centres.  The leaves are from the Cheery Lynn Leaf Border strip die...
...I stamped the individual letters to read 'baby boy' and created the Congratulations sentiment in PS using Cheddar Jack font...
...the inside is decorated with a printed sentiment panel with a simple verse from Verses4cards.
I hope you can find the time to join in with our challenge this week and thanks for coming to visit me!  Don't forget to hop on over to the Passion for Promarkers blog to see the wonderful creations that my fabulous teamies have been creating for your inspiration!
