Passion for Promarkers #11 - Any Colours + Sketch

This week's challenge over at Passion for Promarkers is a fabulous sketch designed by Michele and the big bonus is you can use any colours - so there's no excuses this week for not joining in.

Here's Michele's fab sketch...

Before I show you my card I have to tell you, that you must go and check out the other DT creations - they are stunning this week as always.

The other important stuff I have to share with you before you see my creation is the prize up for grabs this week. This week you can win 6 promarkers of your choice from 

So without further ado, here's my card for this week's challenge

Image: Bumble Bee from Sugar Nellie, coloured with promarkers; Ice Grey 1-4, Apple and Grass. I also used a sakura clear stardust pen on the skirt (see close-up below)

Papers are all CCSR - the big one, matted onto green core'dinations card. I punched 3 large retro flowers from white card, coloured with grass promarker, then punched the petals with the MS doily lace border punch, then added white papermania mulberry flowers and papermania brads. The greeting is Daisy & Dandelion

Here are the close-ups of the flowers and the image to show the stardust detailing

I'm up to my eyeballs today, so I have scheduled this post. I have to be at the hospital at 9.30am to get 2 teeth removed. I am a complete wuss when it comes to dentists, and I asked for a referral for sedation for the extraction. I had a bad experience 10 years ago with a root canal treatment when I was pregnant with Scott and have been petrified ever since. Normally I'm a very brave and rational person and I can handle pain, but this is my biggest weakness, I'm ashamed to say. So anyway, Graham will be collecting me about lunchtime and then at 5pm I have to go away out to Banchory for my sister-in-law-ish to do my hair. She's going to section off the top half off my hair and bleach the bottom half, then she's going to dye it bright purple. After that she's going to dye the top section a slightly darker richer brown than my natural colour. 

So yes, I think I'm having a bit of a mid-life crisis at 36 lol!! So hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with some pics - assuming of course that I like it :)
