A Gem of a Challenge - aquamarine

This week at A Gem of a Challenge we have a photo inspiration chosen by Jackie... I'm not very good at these!

Aquamarine

And here's my card...



I've kept my card quite CAS this week, and used this sweet baby image Baby Boy in Pram - the baby and wheels are coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers, and the pram is paper pieced.  I'm not sure if you can actually tell that it's paper pieced though, because I added a bit too much pencil shading!  I added a couple of gems on the wheels and a Stampin' Up sentiment.  The paper is Magnolia 'cloudy turquoise hearts', which you can currently get as one of the weekend specials at The Stamp Basket.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

I had a bit of a busy day yesterday so I've got loads of commenting to catch up with, and then hopefully I can squeeze in a bit of crafty stuff too ;o)  Hope you all have a fab weekend!

  35. Oh bless...two photo inspiration challenges in one day, tough if they're not you're fave! I find them challenging too because I'm quite literal so this would have been doubly hard for me!
    I reckon you nailed with this little gem of a card (pun intended.. He he ) the pram looks so 3d because your shading is awesome :0)

  39. Hi Lisa

    I have a mountain of commenting to catch up on too (and ironing LOL!!).

    Super busy on the wedding front at the moment and not time for much else!

    Loving your new baby card.

    The little heart backing paper is just gorgeous.

    I hope you had a good weekend.

    Love Jules xx

  40. Those photo inspirations are hard for me too. I think you did very well with this one-such a sweet little pram with a sweet little baby. I like that you pencil shaded the paper pieced part, somehow that never crosses my mind.

  41. Glad I'm not the only one who gets behind on my comments. I'm about 4 days behind though at the moment! Argh!!

    Love this card, CAS is perfect for it. I didn't see the paper piercing detail till you mentioned it but that idea is FANTASTIC! Really like it! xx
