A Gem of a Challenge

Did you know that Pink Gem Designs has started their very own
challenge blog?
It's called A Gem of a Challenge, and will run monthly.
You can use any image on your creation and be in with the
chance to win a Top 3 badge.
Entries with a Pink Gem stamp will also be in with a chance
to win 2 Pink Gem stamps.
These are lovely stamps and I find them to be very versatile.

Here's my card for this month's challenge,
which is a great sketch with the option of using pink and gems.

I am into beads at the moment - so I am trying to find a way to add them
to all my cards...lol*
I think I may have gone overboard with this one. :-)
I added tiny crystal beads to Milly's wellies,
pearl beads on her coat for buttons and
I tried to make the silver bugle beads look like rain.



Recipe:
Stamp - Pink Gem Designs, Milly in Rain, coloured with Copics,
with wellies, coat and umbrella paper pieced.
Design Paper - Papermania, Capsule Collection, Red Hot.
Beads, blooms and adhesive pearls from my stash.
Sentiment Stamp - Personal Impressions
