Hello and thanks for visiting today. It's the 8th of the month which means it's time for a new Gem of a Challenge.
This month the challenge has been set by me! There is a sketch for you to following the option of using Autumnal Colours of red, orange and brown.
I had some lovely Basic Grey Indian Summer papers in mind for this card but they didn't really work well with the super cute Kaya with Flowers so I chose some MME Bloom & Grow papers instead; no red or brown but plenty of orange!
Kaya is coloured with distress inks and then mounted on a nesties label die cut. I added some pearls to the centre of her flowers and coloured these with a peel off pen so they match her dress. The rest of the DT girls have made some gorgeous cards with my sketch so I hope you will join in the challenge. You have a whole month to take part and if you use a Pink Gem image you could win your choice of two Pink Gem stamps.
