BEST WISHES....

Hi everyone....well it's Saturday again and that mean's we have a new challenge for you over at A GEM OF A CHALLENGE....we had a brilliant response to our last challenge,so a big thank you to all who came over and joined us in the fun!
This week our host is Jenny and she's come up with a fabby sketch for you to follow...
I've used a digi image of Janet's this week "Ella"...what a cutie she is,coloured with Promarkers and Prisma's...the papers are also from PINK GEM DESIGNS....from the "Cutie Pie" collection and were a perfect match for my image.
The silver/grey textured cardstock is Papermania as is the sentiment too....which i've stamped out using a "London Fog" Memento Ink pad...blends better with the card rather than me using a black ink pad which would have stuck out like a sore thumb :0).
For the border i've used a Martha Stewart punch....i must use my punches more often and the flowers have been cut using several Woodware,Ek succes and Xcut punches....i've spritzed the white flowers with a Cosmic Shimmer mist "Angel"..this is just perfect with my colour scheme,the shimmer changes from silvers to pinks...just gorgeous IRL,you may just be able to see it in the photo.
The swirls and corner were also cut with punches....Ribbon is Anna Griffin and gem brads and self adhesive pearls from stash.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges :-
SARAH HURLEY CHALLENGE(Thurs)....Four legged friends.
DUTCH DARE(Thurs)....Who's who in the zoo.
DELICIOUS DOODLES(Fri)....Make the card you want.
LITTLE CLAIRE'S CHALLENGE...Flowers.

Well that's about it for now....hope you'll come and take up the challenge with us at A GEM OF A CHALLENGE.....have a fab Saturday,
Take care
