A Gem of a Challenge

>> Wednesday, 8 September 2010

It's the 8th of the month which means its challenge time over at A Gem of a Challenge. This month we have a lovely sketch designed by Janet;



There is an optional extra challenge to use lots of sparkle on your card.

I made my card a couple of weeks ago for my husbands birthday. I thought Tyson was perfect for a male card and I used distress inks to sponge the leaves using a punched template to give it a real jungle feel. I added stickles to some of the leaves for the sparkly element! The papers are MME Bloom & Grow.


You have a chance to win TWO Pink Gem stamps if you enter the challenge (and use a Pink Gem image) so I hope you will join us this month.

I love your card Sharon! I really like how you stamped the fern images at the top to create a "in the jungle" feel!
So glad to hear you had a great holiday and that the weather co-operated.
