Passion for Promarkers & Basic Grey

Another week has flown by & time for another PFP challenge which this week is sponsered by www.yellowmoon.org.uk who are offering a £10 voucher to spend on their site.

Onto this weeks challenge, Natalie has chosen the yummy colours Cocoa & Rose Pink.

I have used a sweet Sugar Nellie Stamp called 'Reflective', which I have had months and never used ............yes I know it's criminal!!!! She has been coloured with Promarkers as follows:

Blush, Dusky Pink, Blossom, Rose Pink, Cocoa, Umber, Sandstone Grass & apple,

I followed the fab sketch from the revived Basic Grey challenge blog, and used my Sultry papers to qualify for the challenge. The Brown cardstock is SU & the Pink is Papermill. Iused my MS Doily lace punch for the Pink strip & the flower was created with the small and medium retro flower punches.
The sentiment is from the Stampin up 'Best Yet' hostess set & was punched out with the small SU Tag punch & layered on to the large, the ribbon & brads are from my stash.
By the way, I gave the man at work the card for his wife & I am not sure he liked it, it took him a while to say anything about it then about said it was OK, I ended up giving it him for nothing as I felt a bit cheeky charging for it........................needless to say after all the stress it caused me over the weekend & the cost I will not be doing anymore unless it is something they have already seen & liked!!!!!!
Thanks for looking, please feel free to leave a comment as I love reading them.




  1. Fantastic Card Sarah, I just hope I can join in the PFP challenge this week, I made a mess off last weeks sketch, and have the grandchildren this week, so had no time to rectify it. They go home tomorrow, so 1st stop is the "SHED" LOL. love the papers you have used...Hugs Avril xx

  4. What a beautiful card Sarah. I love this stamp, reflections. I love the pink and brown together. It's a shame the man at work was unappreciative, I thought you did a great job on the card. Geez, how hard was Retro anyways.
