Spring is in the air!

Well, it's definitely not springlike here in Yorkshire, but we live in hope!
I am excited to show you my card today, as it's my first one as Guest Designer at A Gem of A Challenge
If you haven't joined in with Janet's challenges before, go and check them out. They are now going to be running fortnightly and Debby is the host this time around, with a wonderful sketch to follow.

It's so nice to make something other than Christmas cards - and I couldn't resisit using this cute Spring Chloe, all wrapped up against the chilly spring weather, in her pretty coat and ugg boots, and her cat by her side.
Spring Chloe and the Happy Birthday circle are on sale as polymer stamps at the Pink Gem store, so head on over there and grab yourself a bargain!

This challenge is being sponsored by Letraset and the prize for one lucky winner is a set of Promarkers.

Stamps are coloured with Copics and the little flower was dusted with Making Memories Scrapbook Shimmer.  DP is K & Co, Classic.  Lace and string from my stash.

Challenges -
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes with the optional extra of adding some lace.

There are some fab new products in the Pink Gem store for January. Janet has made some Cutie Pie papers and gorgeous, matching decoupage sheets.
Here's a quick peek at the 'Oh Boy' papers.
