A second post from me today!!! That must be a first, lol.  But, it's Wednesday again and that means time for another I ♥ PROMARKERS challenge.  This week is #187 and the theme is to Make Your Own Flowers. Our sponsor is PINK GEM DESIGNS and my card features the delightful 'Denny with Watering Can'.  Isn't he just the cutest draggie you've ever seen?

My gorgeous papers (well, I think they are) are from Prima's Sun Kiss collection.  I layered the paper and image onto my fave shade of green cardstock.  Denny was coloured, of course, with Promarkers and the sky was done with a blue pans pastel. I made my flowers using one of the amazing Sizzix die sets.  This one is Mini Daisy by Susan Tierney Cockburn.  I cut them with white card stock and shaped them using Susan's tool set, then I coloured the centres of them with yellow pan pastels.  When they were stuck together and dry, I popped a bit of flower soft in the centre of each.  It's the first time I've used that stuff as I bought it especially to use with my flower dies.  I have to say, I'm quite impressed with how it looks.

The fence die is Cheery Lynn and my fave leaf die of all time I think is also Cheery Lynn.  My sentiment was die cut using the Sizzix thinlets Tags & Sentiments and then I stamped the greeting with a stamp from my Personal Impressions mixed sentiments set.  I really like how this card finished up so am well chuffed, 'cause you know we never like our own stuff, ha ha.
