Garden Life at the Passion for Promarkers Challenge

Good Morning my lovely friends.
I hope you are well and having a good week.

Today is the start of a new Passion for Promarkers Challenge
This week our theme is 
Garden Life
For this challenge we are sponsored by Michele R Designs 
 Prize - €10 voucher

I have used a gorgeous stamp from Clearly Besotted Stamps, I love snowdrops. For a
 softer more delicate look I embossed the image in white before colouring.


Items Used:
Stamps - Clearly Besotted Stamps Winter Blooms coloured with Promarkers
Sentiment - LOTV sentiment tags
Crafters Companion Florabunda - 6in x 6in Embossalicious Embossing Folder
Papers - Wild Rose Studio Ginghams
Paper String

If you take a look at the Passion for Promarkers Challenge you will see the wonderful creations made by the rest of the design team.


I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:

Addicted to Stamps - Winter. (I think of snowdrops as Winter flowers, if not feel free to delete my entry!)
Fairytale Stampers - Flowers
Winter Wonderland - Only one designer paper
Cut it Up- Embossing

Thank you for taking the time to stop and look at my card today. Your support and encouragement means so much to me and I love to read any comments you may wish to make.

Bye for now
hugs

This card is so very subtle, clean and crisp, it's just beautiful. Love the white embossing, a genius idea. The snowdrops are just peeking their heads out in my front garden at the moment and I certainly associate them with winter - the forecast here is for snow, Brrr.
