A big day!

Sorry I'm a bit late posting my DT card for this weeks Passion for Promarkers challenge but I've really been flat out as today is my eldest DD's 18th Birthday!  Last week she passed her driving test and all and sundry have been offering her cars to buy but unbeknown to her whilst she was out taking her test we were picking her up a shiny red Micra!  Its been so hard trying to keep it quiet, I even had to phone her boss as a relative of hers was offering her a red micra and we've already got one lol!

We all went out for a pub meal and my friend works there so I'd popped round last night with a cake and balloons so she could sort the table out which she did (Fankoo Maz!)  Staci being 18 of course wanted a drink so I managed to steer her away from that but told OH we're going to have to tell her soon before her mate buys her a drink!  Anyway I gave her a keyring I'd made with a car charm on.  She said she already had one (no that was a pure swarovski bag charm at least 4 times the size!) then my OH said its a keyring to put this on and gave her a key.  She went running round the car park looking for potential cars and decided it must be one of the 2 red micras there (The other one is Maz') and found it!

Staci hugging her new wheels!

 Staci's Birthday cake!

And this is her 18th!  The theme at Passion for Promarkers this week is 'Let it Shine' so I chose an image by Some Odd Girls called Dancin' Mae as my DD is a bit like that!  The card is not my usual style or colours, it was more aimed at her tastes, black and pink, bold, fun and SPARKLY!  She's coloured with Promarkers and I've added shading with pencil and sparkle with sakura stardust pens.  The background I scribbled on with pencil, used sansador to spread and mingle the light and hot pinks then scribbled over again (Staci is VERY messy!)  The flower in her har is iridescent gems, Stace usually wears a huge flower in her hair and I've used Coredinations black magic (hocus pocus) and embossed with a divine swirl folder and rubbed with a nail file.  The flowers are all wild orchid and added stickles so they're all sparkly too!  18 logo is die cut from foil.

There is a prize of a pack of promarkers from Crafty Emmas Store so use promarkers or aqua markers and Let it shine and it'll fit!

Thanks for looking!
