A Gem of a Challenge #5

>> Thursday, 8 July 2010

It's time for our monthly Gem of a Challenge but before I show you my card I need to tell you about a few changes being made to the challenge blog.

From now on our challenges will be a sketch with an optional extra. There will still be a Top 5 as chosen by the DT, plus one lucky winner picked by Random.Org will get to choose 2 Pink Gem stamps as their prize.

Now for this months challenge there is an added bonus too. It's Mandy's birthday this month and she also designed our sketch for this challenge. She is very generously going to give two Pink Gem Stamps as a prize to her favourite card with a Pink Gem image PLUS two Pink Gem Stamps to her favourite entry that hasn't used a Pink Gem image. So it really is worth entering even if you haven't got a Pink Gem stamp (yet!).

Here is my card

Now I love all of Janet's images but this one is definitely in my top 3! She's called 'Snowflake Mimi' although I think she can definitely be used all year round. She is coloured with distress inks and I used a pale grey Tombow pen to create a subtle outline to make her 'pop'. The papers are My Minds Eye Bloom & Grow and I used my Mariannes die for the swirls which are covered with stickles.

I hope you will take part in our challenge this month.
