A Gem of a Challenge #40 ~ Katie's Sketch

Good morning

I can't believe another 2 weeks have whizzed by and it's challenge time once again at AGOAC!!  Our host is Katie with a fabby sketch and as always the lovely Janet is offering a fab prize of 4 digi images from Pink Gem Designs for one lucky winner!
I decided to use the adorable Faye again and teamed her up with some gorgeous HOTP papers that were free in Simply Cards & Papercraft.  I made the large flower with a Donna Salazar - Rose Creations die set that I bought from Pink Gem Designs last week ... unfortunately it is now showing as out of stock.  I have seen a few tutorials on how to make stunning roses with this die set and am hoping to try making some next week when the children are back at school. 


* Card Recipe *

Image ~ Faye
Papers ~ HOTP 'Soft Nostalgia'
