I Love Promarkers Challenge, Truly Scrumptious Challenge and The ABC Challenge

I have made a card to enter into 3 challenges today. 
The card blank I used was a magenta colour but it looks slightly reddish on the picture but it really is pink. I'm saying this because one of the challenges I'm entering into is a colour challenge.
Here are the challenges I'm entering today: 
1) I Love Promarkers No 49 - KISS Keep It Sweet & Simple
2) Truly Scrumptious No 49 - Colour Challenge Brown, Pink & Green
3) The ABC Challenge- M is for Magical. There was an optional extra of a sketch to follow but I didn't do this part as it was a bit fussy and it wouldn't have fitted in with the Promarkers challenge.

The promarker colours I used for this challenge were  Cinnamon for the hair, Baby Pink for the tights, wings and belt, Rose Pink for the shading on wings, Ivory for the skin, Magenta for the tights, bow and belt and Lime Green for the dress.
I used a Magenta A4 card folded in half to make an A5 sized card.
I cut some green embossed hand made craft paper and placed this on the card. Then I used a digital image which I bought yesterday and coloured it  in, cutting it out and adding it to front of the card with foam pads, to give it depth. Then, on the wings, I used Anita's 3D clear gloss finish, to give the wings a bit more definition. It's a shame it hasn't shown up on the photo, as it looks really effective. To finish, I added a pale pink ribbon on the left, I clipped the corners with a rounded corner punch and I used some alphabet clear stamp letters for the greeting. As the card colour was quite dark, you couldn't see the inked greeting too well so I went over it with a thin marker to make it stand out more.
Sorry about the blurry picture, my hands were shaking taking the picture, and this was the only  one I had which showed the colours best.

I hope you like my card. Thank you for taking the time to view my blog.
