Guest Designer for I ♥ ProMarkers!

Hi everyone!
I'm thrilled to announce you that the talented ladies at I ♥ ProMarkers chose me to be part of their team as Guest Designer for March! How wonderful is that!!! I was really excited  over  this news, can't believe it even now, a week later:)). I'm really grateful for this opportunity! Thank you, ladies!
I thought I should tell you about my excitement along with the first card I've prepared for this week's challenge at I ♥ ProMarkers which has a theme of purple and green.


For my card I chose three stamps: my newest adored Magnolia Tilda with butterfly dress, a bridge scene and a freebie sentiment both from Digi Doodle shop. I found some beautiful stamps in there and I'm especially fond of working with digis. It's nice to be able to adjust the dimensions of the image.
Let me explain a bit the construction of my card. I cut a window with a label nestabilities and added an acetate sheet on the back just to showcase my Tilda and bring her forth so as to have her a bit detached from the scene. I've also finished the inside. It is something I always do but usually after I've posted my card:). I think the interior should be given just as much importance. People tend to immediately open the card and the inside is the last impression which sticks with them.
Before having you bored to tears :), let me give you the recipe for this card:

Stamps: Magnolia Tilda with Butterfly Dress  from the Butterfly Dreams collection, Across the Bridge from Digi Doodle Shop.
Medium: Promarkers
Papers: Blushbutter - Fairy Things and Butterfly Wings 
Embellishments: Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, ribbons from stash, purple brads, glitter
Tools; Magnolia Doohikey garden fence, MD creatables, lacey circle nestabilities, Martha Stewart doily lace punch
Sentiment: Digi Doodle freebie

Hope you like it! Don't forget to look for me the following weeks at I ♥ ProMarkers and please scroll down to see the wonderful creations of  the DT ladies, my newest team mates:) It's my first attempt as part of a team, so I'm bursting with excitement:)!!!
