Sweet Ellie - With Love

The theme for challenge #9 over on the I ♥ ProMarkers Challenge Blog this week is 'Animals' so for my DT card I chose this sweet little image from Penny Black.  It is also perfect for a card for my Sister in Law's birthday as she just loves elephants.

I cut out the image with a nestabilities circle die and attached this to a pink layer cut with a slightly larger scalloped circle die.  I then coloured her with ProMarkers and gave her some funky sparkly 'nail varnish' - which I know will make my SiL smile :o)  I used my lovely Martha Stewart double flower punch again for this card - I am so pleased I got this at the NEC recently.  There's just a little crystal stickles in the centre of the flowers and also on the flowers in the image.  A strip of cream card edged with a Martha Stewart border punch and a length of ribbon finish off the bottom of the layout.  I added a sentiment from a set by Papermania, cut out with an oval petite scallop nestie and the card was complete. 

I hope you've enjoyed your visit today, this week's prize on the I ♥ ProMarkers Challenge Blog is sponsored by Joanna Sheen - a great incentive to enter a project for a chance to win if you ask me!  No sketch to follow this week, you just need to include some type of animal in your project and link it up on the blog - I hope to see you over there, it's worth a visit to the blog just to see the inspirational DT cards !

I saw your card on the I love Promarkers blog and had to have another look at it here. Up close it is even better. the elephant is so cute and the flower punch looks like a good purchase!
