A Gem of a Challenge - sketch

This week at A Gem of a Challenge we have a fab sketch created by Jackie, it's a really lovely one to work with...



I'm finally starting to feel better today, still coughing and sneezing but I don't feel so wiped out now - hurrah!  However, when I made this card I still felt awful, so I cheated and used the pre-coloured version of this gorgeous Faye image - I printed her onto linen card and just added loads of glamour dust!  I used papers from the Micro Dots and Gingham collections, also printed onto linen card, and added a scrap of stripy Raspberry Rd paper.

The scalloped border was cut with a Tim Holtz die, the flowers are a mix of ancient stash and Wild Orchid Crafts, gingham ribbon from my stash.  The sentiment is a Pink Gem Designs one available here and the little spotty buttons are Papermania.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Well, as I haven't managed to make my mum's Mother's Day card yet, I suppose I'd better get on with that today!  Hope you all have a lovely day :o)

  8. Hi Lisa, such a pretty card! Love the colours and your flowers - and it's never a bad thing to have a few pre-coloured / printed images, we all have last minute rushes! Or those times when we just don't want to / don't feel like colouring!!
