CES DT - Sugar Nellie Bookmark....

Hello all, managed to get back into my craftroom all set to make a card and I end up with a bookmark hehe... Sorry, its not the best of piccies.
Today we see a new challenge over at the CES Challenge Blog and this weeks theme is "Forever Autumn".
Dont use these colours much but love the combination. I have used a Sugar Nellie Stamp that I've had for years and love her (but dont know her name). Had a few packs of Promarker Fine Nibs sitting here for ages but yet to try and Wow, they are fantastic. What a transformation. Love them!! Used 3 shades of Orange Promarkers and them used the Pro Nib with the Chestnut Promarker to go over the linage. Also tried the new Flexmarkers just for the skin. Jury still out on this one. They are very pale and not a great selection of colours right now. I'm not overexcited about the nib either and feel the pen is quite chunky to hold. Personal opinion but I know I'll still get the new sets when they are released.
Anyway, heres my bookmark. Promarkers and Nibs both available from Crafty Emma's Store and an additional 20% discount for most stock. Other items used, BG scrap paper piece, flowers, glimmer mist, viva gold and orange pens, lace, chalk ink pad, prima flowers, punched leaves & butterfly brad.
As always, gorgeous cards from the rest of my teamies and I enjoyed playing with this colour combo.
Think I'll give the bookmark to my Zoe, always got a book on the go which cant be a bad thing.
Have a lovely weekend and thanks for stopping by today.
