Elf with Poppy Blooms - Aurorawings - Passion for Promarkers DT

Well finally I get to post my card.   What a couple of days I've had. Was working on the pc on Sunday and thought I could smell something strange......  I could..... it was the power supply burning out.  Smoke and sparks coming from the pc...... luckily for me it didn't affect the hard drive and the lovely little boy.... must be at least 18... :)  managed to save it and add it to my new pc. £440 later and a days wait and I am up and running again and desperately trying to work out what to reinstall.  This is also a Windows 7... totally different from Vista so it will take a while to get used to.
Anyhow enough of my moans.... Welcome to my new follower, thanks for taking the time to join my list.

Today is the start of a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers and I have chosen this week's theme, which is 'Butterfly Kisses' (must have a butterfly somewhere).... easy or what?

I have used another image from Aurora Wings and this is Elf with Poppy Blooms.  I adore poppies but decided to go with the Icelandic type this time.

No added flowers as I didn't want to detract from the gorgeous image. She is cut with a SB Grand oval and matted onto another one and then I added a Grand Decorative oval.  The sentiment is from LOTV and is mounted onto a lacey circle.  The butterflies under the ribbon and the single one are from MB and the ones on the other side are Joanna Sheens.  Everything is mounted onto co-ordinations.

She is of course coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers, and Triamarkers. I also added Prisma pencil for extra depth and stickles to the lightest parts of the flowers. Wish it showed more.  I also filled in the butterfly wings with glossy accents, but again it doesn't show.

The inside does reflect the front.

We have two generous sponsors this week – first is our regular sponsor Letraset and they are offering one lucky winner a flex marker 6 pack of pens. 
Our second sponsor is one of our brand new sponsors this year - Crafty Sentiments designs – and they are offering one lucky winner a prize of 3 digi images of their choice.  They have so many gorgeous digis in their store and the DT have used a couple on their cards this week. 
 Don’t forget, as always, to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Letrasetproducts (i.e. promarkers, flex markers, aqua markers, tria markers, metallic markers or neon markers).

Thanks for taking the time to look
