Executive Woman - The Paper Shelter - PFP DT

Can I start by wishing you all Happy New Year !!!! I hope you all had a great Christmas and enjoyed any celebrations you had last night.

Sorry to have been missing for so long but after being so busy leading up to Christmas I then got the dreaded Norovirus. Thankfully I am now over it but still feeling very washed out so HUGE apologies for not commenting in so long.

As there is a new challenge on the Passion For Promarkers blog I had to get myself in gear to make this for the 'New Beginnings' challenge.
I have used 'Executive Woman' from The Paper Shelter.

She certainly looks dressed for the part. She is cut with SB labels 25 with a faux nestie behind her. The corners are from  Joy Crafts and the sentiment is Whimsy. Backing paper is Boofle and ribbon lace and pearls from my stash.

She is of course coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma pencils.

The inside does reflect the front.

I hope you will join in with this weeks challenge were our sponsor is Letraset

Do pop over to see the other fabulous cards the DT have made.and they are offering a set of the new Promarkers to the winner (have to admit I love the latest colours they have released and have used a couple of them on this card.

I am entering the following challenges :-

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog. My New Year resolution is to keep up with blogging :)
