First challenge card

Ok, this is the first time I have made a card for challenges so I hope it's up to standard!

 I have entered this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Creations  where the theme is 'We want to see you shine'- I have glittered the image and there is mirri card behind the pale pink matt.
Craftalicious  where the theme is 'monotone'
Crafty Catz - use a digital image
Paper Sundaes- make a birthday card
Crafty Sentiments - make a birthday card
Bee Crafty- Downloads  where the theme is 'pink & girly'
Craftsandme- make a birthday card

The digistamp is from Sassy Studio which is colored with Promarkers and glittered with glamor dust, the pale pink paper was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, the border is a Martha Stewart punch, the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards as is the card candy and the bright pink and silver card is from my stash.

My first blog post...and first uploaded card :)

Ooh wow I'm so excited- I signed up for this blog ages ago but things happened and I never did anything with it. Now life has calmed down slightly so I thought it was time I got my act together :).

I hope you like my first card- the stamp is by Mo Manning which was colored with Promarkers, the stripy backing paper is from Honey & Hugs paper stack and the lace punch is by Martha Stewart.

I am still very much a novice where Promarkers are concerned, although I am getting better every day.

Please excuse the awful photograph- I would like to say that I have a crap camera but the truth is I just can't take a decent photo no matter how hard I try! I will practice loads and hopefully will upload better pics next time :)
