A Gem of a Challenge

>> Thursday, 8 April 2010

It’s the 8th of the month which means its time for our third ‘Gem of a Challenge’.  Christine has set our challenge this time and it’s to make a card for a special birthday (eg. 1st, 16th, 21st etc).

Now Christine herself is celebrating a very special birthday this week so I made my card with her in mind!


I’ve seen a few of these ‘flower pot’ cards around in blogland so I thought I would have a go myself.  It was really fun to make once I’d got all my measurements sorted out!  The papers are all MME Bloom & Grow and I stamped Teddy with Rose onto shrink plastic, coloured her with chalks and then punched a hole at the top before shrinking her with my heat gun. 

PG2You can see her a bit more clearly here.

I added some white card to the insert that slots into the pot to make it easier to write a greeting.




Please pop along and visit the challenge blog.  The other DT girls have made some gorgeous cards and if you use a Pink Gem image on your card you could win two fantastic stamps!
