It's Wednesday again and challenge #49 at I ♥ PROMARKERS this week is K.I.S.S. Keep It Sweet and Simple. So you can do anything you like but not too busy. Nice one, eh? :o) Our great sponsor this week is SENTIMENTS 4 YOU. They are offering a $10 spend and there's loads of lovely digital sentiments to download. The DT have used one of the ticket sentiments this week.

My card ended up not being quite so simple, lol. I stamped my peacock, did my embossing and put it all together and was quite pleased with it.

OK. What's wrong with it then? I didn't realise until the lovely Tine asked me had I used Promarkers to do it? Ha, ha, nope. Doh!! Of course, this being a Promarker challenge, I had to use them. I was going to make a new card but then decided to get my Marine, Turquoise and Bright Green out and colour it a bit.

I used my Crafts Too 'Flowers and Daisies' embossing folder again and the peacock is from the Kanban 'Peacock' set. There are some fabulous stamps in this set including the most gorgeous bird cage.

Entering into these challenges:
MY PARTNER IN CRAFTING CRIME - Something new. (stamp)
SPOONFUL OF SUGAR - Blue and Green.
COLOUR CHEF - Black, white, green and ocean (blue).
DIE CUT DREAMS - Stamp AND digi.

A beautiful card Lorraine, it works equally as well as a white on white and as a beautifully coloured image. The embossing really stands out and makes a wonderful backdrop to the image.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful card with us at Creative Cowgirls Challenge. :-) xx
