A gem of a challenge card!!!
Massive apologies for not blogging recently but I have been very busy with a new project that I will be able to share with you soon that is soooo exciting!!! I still have been crafting and am in the middle of some Joanna Sheen and La Pashe samples too but it doesn't leave me a lot of time to write on my own blog, never mind visting any of yours! :(
This card is my GDT card for A gem of a challenge. The theme this month is "cold and frosty" and you can find all the info here. I have used a cute digi of winter Philip which you can find here at Pink Gem Designs. I have coloured him in with my promarkers and added a little glamour dust to the snow. The papers are from the fab Summer Driggs freebie kit "Winter wonderland" which you download for yourself here. Check out all her designs which are equally fab!!!
I have added some silver frosty mirror card which works really well with the theme here although it is quite difficult to photograph. The snowflakes are from an x-cut punch which I'm sure is faulty as it sticks every single time I use it which is dead annoying. The icicle border is a marianne designs one which I think is really fab! The setiment is also from Pink Gem and is from a A7 rubber stamp sheet and is available here.
