After feeling pretty rotten all day, I managed to get into gear to make another card tonight. For some reason it is always at night time the urge gets me. So I set about making a card I had planned for a while, congratulating a friend who is setting up a brand new cupcake and birthday cake baking business.

For the design I used the sketch from the pink gem challenge (http://pinkgemchallengeblog.blogspot.com/). I did find this a real challenge. In theory it should be so easy, the thinking is all done in advance, all you have to do is follow the scheme. I find it easier though just to go with and almost let a card design itself. Then if I bosh up somewhere, I can hide it with some embellishment, or something. Now it had to be right.

I think I did well all in all. I'm certainly very happy to send this to my friend. The trouble is I have made it just a tiny bit too big to fit in an envelope, so it is going to have to go into one that is far too big, unless I make one to go with it. Ah, well. 

Oh, and it was also my very first ever go with the promarkers. I admit it was a minor attempt, but at least I'm past that threshold now!
