A gem of a challenge bloomin charmin

Hellooo! I am actually back now but this is still a scheduled post (gosh how organised!) as I probably got straight back from hols under a mountain of washing and then went off to work this weekend again!
We do have another new challenge over at a gem of a challenge this time, chosen by me again (can you tell?) and it's to use flowers and charms on your creation.

I have to say when I originally set this theme I imagined going down my general pastel/vintage style with a sweet silver charm tucked under some chiffon ribbon but ended up going bright and bold with one of my worst colour combos black and red lol! Sometimes however things just choose you!

My sweet spinkles image from pink gem designs has been coloured with prismas with some stickles sparkle to her crown, wand and stars and extra sparkle in the form of glamour dust on her wings. I had some of these fab ladybird charms in my stash and knew that they would go perfectly with her.
My papers are pink petticoat doodle dots with my lace and flowers coming from wild orchids. My corner acetate piece is from my stash and I chose to go without a sentiment this time.

Please check out the rest of the DTs amazing creations and I hope you can join us for my challenge. There will be some new releases coming out of Pink Gems really soon so watch this space!
Thanks for coming by my blog again and for keeping my blog company during my absence this wk, I will be back soon to draw my candy!
Hugs all
