A Gem of a Challenge - Cherish Every Moment

Happy Saturday Everyone!
It's definitely Summer here with us hitting the triple digits and the children are out of school. I'm going to try and keep up with a card a day on the blog apart from a little break in a few weeks for vacation.
Today's card is made with a stamp from a British stamp company called Pink Gem Designs. I discovered them after a trip home to England where I bought a card making magazine that had a little article on them. I bought a few of their stamps and loved them.
Then they brought out a new character in their designs and I just had to have some more :)

I have a few challenges to help me out:

Pink Gem Challenges - Burgundy, Pink and Green
Fresh Brewed - For The Kids
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch
Charisma Cardz - Flowers (I did some of the popular handmade spiral flowers)
Alphabet Challenge - F is for Flowers
Stempel-Magie - Flowers
Paperplay - Flowers and Sparkle
Scrap Stamp and Doodle - Handmade Embellishment
Quirky Crafts - Girly Girl
Pear Tree Designs - Floral Delights
Crafty Ho's - Bling, Ribbon and Flourish

Card Recipe:
Image - Sitting Chloe by Pink Gem Designs
Paper - Colorbok Sweet Hearts
Medium - Copic Markers
Sentiment - The Paper Studio
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Flowers - Handmade
Swirl Punch - EK Success
Rhinestones - $1 spot
Die Cut - Quickutz

Here you can hopefully see the spiral flowers better. They are super easy to make and you can find by simply Googling "Handmade Spiral Flowers".
I hope you've liked this card and please drop back tomorrow for a new card for Pile It On!
