Holly in the Garden and Fantastic Blog Candy !

Have you seen the fantastic blog candy over at Karen of Charmed Cards' blog ? Well, you have the chance to win 72 Copic markers, yes, 72 !

Well, you have to be in it to win it so here is my entry.

The base card is white Bazzill.

The image is Holly in the Garden which is a download from Charmed Cards which I have coloured with my ProMarkers. Ivory and blush (skin), rose pink and blossom (hat and top), marsh green and olive green (boots and dungarees), apricot (belt and ties in hair), mustard, sandstone and cocoa (hair), blue pearl and china blue (flowers), sandstone and cocoa (basket), blue pearl (eyes), magenta (lips). I also used a Sakura clear gel pen on the flowers to give some sparkle.

The patterned papers are DCWV Nana's Nursery.

The pink card (which isn't as bright as on the photo !) is from the Papermania card stack.

The cream raffia ribbon is from HobbyCraft.

The photo corners have been punched with an EK Success photo corner punch.

The flowers have been punched with two EK Success retro flower punches and doodled with a white gel pen and distressed with some vintage photo distress ink. The buttons are Woodware.

The leaves have been punched from a Leone Em leaf punch and distressed with vintage photo distress ink.

The sentiment is Hero Arts stamped with Versafine Olympia Green ink.

I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed that RNG chooses me but go on, give it a go !!!

Happy Tuesday !

    I got up very early this morning and opened my pressie - omg, I don't know what to say!! You've spoilt me rotten and what a fantastic surprise to get the Copics..... now I can try before I buy!!! Also, the info and chart will be so useful. I will email you later but I just wanted to let you know how over the moon I am. Still at work just now ;o(
