More challenges................

I think I'm hooked on these challenges! This card is for 3 challenges.
The first is Passion for ProMarkers, which is a colour combo - Agean, Sky Blue and Cool Aqua, the next is Truly Scrumptious, which is a sketch, with an optional extra of Buttons and Bows, and lastly for A Spoonful of Sugar (technically, I shouldn't even look at this blog as I am diabetic...LOL), which is a recipe of 1 patterned paper, 1 embossed paper, 1 button, 1 ribbon.

The image is a digi stamp from The Greetings Farm called Springtime Fairy, and I thought she just lent herself to the colour scheme. I printed the paper from My Craft Studio, the embossed paper was embossed with my favourite Cuttlebug folder - Swiss Dots.
I was a bit stuck for the flower, but remembered that I bought a new set of clear stamps last week from the Papermill Shop. It is a "build yourself a flower" set! I coloured the flower with a mix of Cool Aqua and Sky Blue, then added a button for the centre which I also coloured from its normal beige to Yellow with my ProMarkers.
I don't like making landscape cards as a rule, as I find that they don't stand up for long, but I found a method that works. I cut the A4 in half to make 2 A5's then tie them together with the ribbon. Much sturdier!
