One Card for Three Challenges - Just Magnolia, Cute Card Thursday and Stampin for the Weekend

Good Morning Girls, well I did eventually get around last night to creating a card for three Challenges, the Just Magnolia's "Anything Goes" and Cute Card Thursdays "Sketch",  lastly for Stampin for Weekends "Create Yourself", you can use a book and Im going to use Robin Hood.
And Ive used these two new images from Just Magnolia, a Tilda Princess and Robin Hood, I decided although shes not actually Maid Marion she certainly will get away with standing in for her. Ive stamped them onto white card by masking the princess so that I can stamp Robin Hood behind her, then this time I used the Promarkers which Im still having problems getting the hand of them, they dont seem to have the same colour range that the Copics do, but I will persevere with them, I did cheat and use the Copics for the skin tones as Im used to the combination for that.
Anyway after cut them out Ive mounted them onto two shades of pink card. The sentiment is one of my craft stash one, its probably a Hobby Art one or even a Pink Gem one, sorry I carnt remember of hand. The base card is a 7"x 7" white card and another piece of dark pink card for the base layer and one of two papers from my Nitwit Downloads collections, a very pretty pink flower paper and the second is a green base paper with lots of hearts on it. I then stuck across the card two pieces of ribbon and attached them at the back of the first layer, my mounted image was stuck in the centre and my sentiment at the bottom on the right.
To finish of Ive used some of the left over paper to create a flower from them this I Ive placed at the top of my card on top of some punched out maidenhead fern leaves. The last thing I did was pop some pink heart gems in certain places.

your princess tilda works brilliantly with Robin hood Edwin.. they are both fabulous hun... i have heard that the colour range for the pro markers are not as large as the copics..but i haven't used pro markers before... i am waffling now.. haha..
