A Gem of a Challenge - photo inspiration

This week at A Gem of a Challenge we have this gorgeous inspiration photo chosen by the lovely Rebekah...


And here's my card... those with an aversion to pink might want to look away now ;o)




This cute little ted is a new digi stamp called Love Heart Teddy, coloured with promarkers, flexmarkers and koh-i-noor pencils, and I added some sparkle to the hearts with a sakura clear stardust pen.  The papers are from a Forever Friends pad, with textured kraft card from Stampin' Up.  The sentiment ticket is from Pink Gem, available here.  The swirly corner is a sizzix die, the butterfly was cut with a MS punch, and the pearls and raffia lace are from my stash.

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend so far.  I'm not planning on doing much today as I still have this rotten cold, so I'll be curled up in the chair with my Kindle for most of the day I think :o)  I'll be back in a little while with my DT card for Sweet Stampin' though.

  9. Aww, I love this Lisa, so pretty and girly. Hope the cold goes soon. Got a kindle for my birthday and read 5 books, not used it for months so will dust it off and take it to bed!
