How Charming at A Gem of a Challenge

Morning Folks
Hope you are all well and looking forward to enjoying your weekend.  Not too sure what the weather is going to do as heavy rain is predicted in some areas of the UK.  I am planning on doing a bit of crafting today followed by a trip to the pub this evening with some friends to see a band.  But really got to get in the garden tomorrow.  We are planning some changes to our garden so got to get out and do some clearing. Can't say I am looking forward to the work but looking forward to the end result.

Anyway, enough waffling and onto my reason for being here this morning.
It's time for a new challenge over at A Gem of A Challenge and this time our lovely Debbie has chosen the theme of

How Charming
Simply add a charm to your project.

The prize as usual is:
2 individual digi images
(no sets, pesonalised watermarks or sentiment sets)
of the winners choice from Pink Gem Designs

I used a super cute image called Baby Girl Sleeping.  The image is coloured with promarkers and I did a bit of paper piecing and added some glamour dust to the hearts and stars.  The papers are from Papermania and have been matted onto Pink Coredinations card stock.  Although you can's see it very well I did add 3 different widths of ribbon across the centre and some lace to the smaller square panel.  For embellishments I added a crotchet flower, feathers, card candi, a bow, glittery button to the bow and a sentiment.  For my charm I had a lovely little pram which I added to the bow.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  For more inspiration check out my teamies creations over at A Gem of A Challenge.
