A Gem of a Challenge

Hi Folks
This is a scheduled post as when this goes live I will be getting ready for my second day at the NEC.

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at A Gem of a Challenge.  Our theme for this week has been chosen by the lovely Debbie and is:
Gems, Gems, Gems
I am sure this will be an easy one for many of you.

Our prize as always is

2 individual digi images
(NO SETS, PERSONALISED WATERMARKS OR SENTIMENT SETS)
of the winners choice from PINK GEM DESIGNS.....

Here is my inspiration project using a cute digi image called Christmas Tree which can be found here.


I used the pre coloured image for this card.  Once printed out I fussy cut round it and just added lots of gems as baubles.  The background is a pre embossed piece that I have had since last christmas.  I added some distress ink to pick out the snowflake design and then added some stickles to the centre of the snowflakes.  Some ribbon and a bow at the bottom and more gems finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to A Gem of a Challenge to enter and don't forget to check out the awesome projects from the design team.
