1 Card 3 Challenges

Hi all,

Well i'm back from my hols and have started a new job, only taken me 6 months lol. So i'm now compiling a wish list of new crafting goodies when the wages come through lol. I made this card today which i'm entering into 3 challenges. The first is Any one for Anya The theme is sugar and spice so i thought a girly card was in order.

The second is Passion for promarkers, where the colour challenge is purple, the image is coloured with my promarkers.

and lastly the third is die cut dreams where hearts and flowers needed to be included on the card.
The papers are dovecraft, flowers are prima and embellishments are from my stash.
