I used the image "first flower" and had a hard time corperating the image into the theme. I thought it would be wonderful for an easter or "spring is here" kind of card. However - I wanted to challenge myself and came up with the idea to only use parts of the image. That's the great thing about big scenery images - you don't have to use them as they are.

Today's promarker tip:
If you don't have cardstock in the exact shade to match your patterned paper you can color it using your promarkers. 
Simply choose a color that's a lighter shade of the one you want. You can use several promarkers to get the perfect match. Here I used rose pink first and lavender on top to get my cardstock to match the purple patterned paper.
