Passion for Promarkers - Come Fly with Me...

Good morning, dear Blogger buddies and a Happy Tuesday to you all!  For those of you in the UK, I hope you enjoyed the long Bank Holiday weekend?  Unfortunately, it's back to normality with a bump again today!
So, it's the start of a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and this week it's the lovely Marie in the hostess chair.  She has chosen a theme of 'Come Fly with me', so we'd like to see things that can fly on your projects...birds, butterflies, bees, fairies, aeroplanes, balloons and whatever else you can think of! Nice and easy!
This week we are sponsored by A Day for Daisies who are offering one lucky winner a $12.00 voucher for their online store...
Don't forget, to be eligible to win the prize, you MUST use your Letraset products (i.e. pro, flex, tria, aqua, metallic or neon markers) and of course follow the theme.
...I decided to go with a little bird which is actually part of the digistamp Birdie Friend from Whimsy Stamps.  I wanted to colour the flower as a poppy, though I don't often use red in my crafting - don't know why as I love the vibrancy it gives...

Cute card Lisa and your colouring on the flower is awesome! I tend not to use red much either, I struggle a bit as it's such a strong colour!
Hope the birthday bash went well at the weekend and I'll see you Sat,
hugs, Karen xx
