pro-markers, blush and dusty pink. The gorgeous papers also came in the order,
( i've had a bit of a spending spree and treated myself these last few weeks lol! )
i love the bright zingy colours and detailed design. :O) I finished the card of with my MSBP and a few embellies: my prima flowers, some iced gems, and a few pearl sprays.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
1} Papertake Weekly: New. My BG papers and B+W stamp is new so i think that fits.
2} SophistiCat Challenge: Fancy Borders. I've used my MSBP Doliy Lace
3} ABC: L is for layering: I've mat and layered everything, and i've used 2 sheets of design DP
