Mad for Markers - Yellow & Pink Challenge

This is the card that I have made for the current Mad for Markers Challenge - using pink and yellow. I have used a Penny Black stamp and I have also coloured a Martha Stewart butterfly punch with my pens. Thanks to Mad for Markers for putting these challenges up and my next challenge is to enter more.

Out of the Hat Challenge

This is a lay out that I have done today for a challenge by "Out of the Hat". The challenge - Use a Doily, Monocromatic and at least 50% of negative space. All things I am uncomfortable with however this is one of the MANY photos I have been wanting to scrap for sometime. It is a photo of Katie when she was a junior bridesmaid for Belinda and Troy (just a couple of years ago). This photo shows the doily - it was cut using my friend's Cindy Loo Cricut Cartridge and the butterflies are punches embossed with Opals Embossing Enamel. I have "spritzed" the doily with Perfect Pearls.

In this wedding there were 4 bridesmaids and 4 junior bridesmaids / flower girls wearing 4 different colours. The bridesmaids wore a darker shade of the colour worn by the junior bridesmaids. At the time Katie's favourite colour was purple which she was very lucky to be wearing for the wedding. We were so proud of her this day as she really stepped up to the mark and was the perfect young lady all day. We may be a little biased but we also thought she looked absolutely gorgeous.
