DT card for A Gem of a Challenge - Ribbons and Lace

Hello everyone, I hope you are all having a good weekend so far.
Today is my first Design Team card for A Gem of a Challenge. I honestly feel so lucky to have been picked to join such a wonderful and friendly team.

The theme for the next 2 weeks set by the gorgeous Sazzle is

Ribbon and Lace


The prize for the lucky winner is 4 Digi images of your choice from Pink Gem Design...{subject to availability}

It took me ages to choose which of Janet's images to use for this challenge, I love them all!! I finally decided on this sweet girlie called  Sunflower Sprinkles because I wanted to make a little card to cheer up a friend who hates the dark Winter months.
The wonderful sentiment is also from Pink Gem and works so well with the image I think  I love to use digi stamp sentiments, its so handy to be able so adjust the size to fit the image.

Items Used.
Digi Stamp - Pink Gem Designs ~ Sunflower Sprinkles coloured with Promarkers
Sentiment - Digi stamp Pink Gem Designs sunshine and Smiles
Papers - First Edition Boho Chic
Spellbinders - large circles and scalloped circles
Ribbon, lace and dew drops from stash.
Papermania Kraft card

If you pop over to the A Gem of a Challenge blog you will be able to see the rest of the gorgeous creations made by 'the Pinks' team and also see who were the winners of the last challenge.


I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:
Totally Papercrafts - cute and girly
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes



Thank you for taking the time to stop and look at my card today, I really do appreciate it and your support means so much to me.
I hope you all have an enjoyable weekend, whatever you might be up to.

Bye for now
Hugs

Karen said...

My dear friend, this is one of the most precious cards I've seen. Your coloring is always marvelous, but it just stands out so beautifully with this image. It is flawless. The color palette for this design is stunning and I love how so many of your elements resemble suns! The sweet flowers/sun (hehe!) look so gorgeous nestled alongside the sentiment. And what a sweet sentiment it is! The gorgeous lace trims and soft ribbon.. it's just all so exquisite. I have no doubt that this card will be a burst of sunshine all winter long for your friend. :o) Thank you for always inspiring us with your creations. :o)

Hugs and blessings!
