It's week #168 over at I ♥ PROMARKERS and time for a new challenge.  This week it's all about simple.  We want to see your cards with very few embellishments on them.  Two sponsors are joining us this week so there will be two winners.  J & C CREATIONS are offering a £10 voucher and  HOBBYBOOK are offering 5 digi images of the winners choice.

For my card I used an Embossalicious embossing folder and the flower was made using the separate pieces from an Elusive Images plate. I've had these stamps for about 4 years now and only used them twice!!! It's coloured of course with my Promarkers and I also coloured the piece of card used as the mat.  Not a lot else to say really, lol.

Entering into:
LADY ANNE'S/VICKIE #4 - Anything goes.
MAKE IT MONDAY #140 - Anything goes.
LOVE TO CREATE #65 - Flowers.
CARD MANIA #20 # Flowers.
USE YOUR STUFF #84 - Focus on flowers.

I've also done another layout of my grandson, although to be honest, I'm not too keen on this one.  It's not the fact that he's crying  (who likes to see a child crying?) but I just couldn't seem to get the layout to work.  Papers are Echo Park 'Splash'.
