Sweet Snowdrops - Guest Designer at Pink Gem Designs!

It looks like it will be a very busy year for me crafting wise and I can't wait!
Just before I left for England I got a very nice email from Janet at Pink Gem Designs asking me if I'd like to join them as a Guest Designer for 3 months.
I was super excited when Janet asked me to join in as I love their designs! I discovered Pink Gem Designs 2 years ago in a British card magazine and was hooked from the start! The images are so cute and I hope you enjoy my cards for them this 1st quarter of the new year.
Today is my first card as a Guest Designer and this card is part of their A Gem of A Challenge!. From today the challenge goes to every two weeks so more chances to play and win!

Plus we have a fabulous prize to start off 2011 from our generous sponsors...

who have given us this super set of Promarkers to award to our winner!

Image - Ellie and Snowdrops

I popped the scalloped circle up on a piece of foam for a little extra dimension.
I also added Icicle Stickles to the Snowdrops, as snow on the ground, on her boots and even in her hair band!
I hope to see you over at A Gem of A Challenge!

Also Janet has released a brand new set of Digital Papers

and they are so cute! They are called Oh Boy! and are available right now, I'm sure they'll be making an appearance on my cards very soon :)
