1st Pink Gem GDT card!!!

Hiya Everyone,

As you will know from my post a few days ago I was picked by Janet to be guest design team member. Anyway, this is my first GDT card to share with you. The new challenge over on the Pink Gem challenge blog is a colour inspiration and runs from the 3rd to the 17th September. The image is obviously a fabulous Pink Gem image called Jodie which you can get here which is coloured in with my promarkers. The papers are from Pink Petticoat, flowers from WOC and all other bits from my stash!

I'm really looking forward to this GDT stint and hope to be a little more prepared for the next challenge as I only made this last night but I have had a little poorly lady.
