Returning with a fanfare! My 3rd GD card for I love Promarkers

Hi everyone, I only got back from my holiday yesterday evening so there is no time today for me to do anything more than to quickly post my 3rd card I made for my GD spot with the lovely ladies from I Love Promarkers. I will be back in the next few days with some of my sunshine filled Greek photos and news but one other amazing thing happened whilst I was away. I was the blog hop winner of the new Vintage Lili of the Valley stamps range and I won the whole...yes I do mean the whole of this new release. Yes £325 worth of stamps. I nearly fell over when I saw my name as the lucky winner. It was a good job my hotel had Internet access so that I could contact them. How amazing is that! I am expecting my parcel later today and of course will be back with a post about it soon.

So on to my GD card.....There is an anything goes theme over at the I Love Promarkers challenge starting today as the design team are showcasing some fab stamps from Sherry Baldy. I was new to this range which are called "Besties"and my particular digi stamp is called Belinda Beehive. What a cutie she is. There are no less that 3 winners to be chosen this week and each will win 5 of their own  Bestie digis! What an amazing prize, do join in this week.

I decided to make a stepper card this time with a hot summery feel, it was 35c when I left Kephalonia yesterday.

I coloured her up with my Promarkers.

I added lots of bling and embellies.
Here she is in close up.
The sentiment is an old LOTV (I will have sooo many to choose from now).
The backing papers are Nitwits.
The large butterfly is a Marianne die cut and the smaller ones are MS punched butterflies.
The wooden dragonflies have been in my stash for years.

 I had another win (yes I know I seem to be on a roll at the moment) This time I won the amazing Marianne leaf and flower die and I have made my very own paper roses (shown below) The great thing with them is that you can match your papers. I filled the insides with lots of glitter as well to make them sparkle.

You need to keep this one quiet as it is an anniversary card for my darling daughter and son in law who have their 1st wedding anniversary coming up next month.
