Passion for Promarkers Challenge - 6 March 2012

Over at the Passion for Promarkers Challenge this week the topic is "for mum/female relative".
I recently attend the Stamperama event at Stevenage.  There were lots of stalls there but there were some I had to visit including Crafts and Me.  I see many stamps/digital images on blogs but it's always nice to see them before buying.  I bought two stamps but after talking to the lovely Theresa and Tracy and seeing the beautiful samples made by the Crafts and Me Design Team another stamp came home with me.  The two of them were so friendly and had so much passion for what they were selling/demonstrating.  A stamp I was getting I realised the image hadn't got legs and I tend to steer clear of these but now I wish I'd got it!!!

For my card I have used this gorgeous Crafts and Me stamp called "Angels with Emeralds" by Jasmine Becket-Griffith.  The image I have coloured with Promarkers, distressed around the edge of the image with my Tim Holtz distressing tool and then edged with a blue chalk ink pad.  The two blue patterned papers are from a Prima book called "Reflections".  The quality of these papers is brilliant, on the verge of card.  I have finished the card off with some lace, pearls, ribbon, triple ribbon bow, Craftwork Cards sentiment, doily, flowers from the Artylicious Essence of Nature CD and brads.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
