A Gem of a Challenge - Jenny's sketch

Good morning (just), happy Saturday everyone :o)  Today I have my card for A Gem of a Challenge to show you - Jenny has created a fab sketch for us all to use...




I've used one of the lovely new images from Pink Gem Designs, this is Mimi & Bird, and I've coloured her with promarkers and flexmarkers and added a little pearl on the flower in her hair.  The papers are Life Documented from Raspberry Rd, printed onto linen card.  Flowers were cut with an x-cut punch, and I made the middles by embossing little circles of kraft card - there's a couple of small circles on the Stampin' Up owl punch that are the perfect size for them, and I also used the owl punch for the little kraft hearts.  The sentiment is LOTV, cut out with a nestabilities labels 14 die.

Here's Jenny's fab sketch


I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Well I'm going to keep this fairly short today so I can attempt to catch up with some of your lovely blogs!  I've also had a couple of prize wins that I haven't spent yet, so I think a bit of online browsing is in order, and then it'll be off to the craft room for me.  Hope you're all having a lovely weekend so far :o)
