A new sketch at a gem of a challenge

Happy weekend to you all! Today sees another challenge over at A gem of a challenge and this time we have a super sketch from the lovely Mandy to inspire us! Many of the DT have used the new xmas releases which are now available in store! There are also some fab digi download papers to be had so get across and check them out!
Here is my card using todays sketch with a super new xmas release Chloe too!

I actually made a completely different card which didn't follow the sketch at all (duh) so I had to hastily get cracking on another lol! I have used papers from DCWV xmas multi stack. My cheesecloth and pearls are from stash. My tag is cut with a magnolia doo hickey, my flowers are wild orchids and my cute stocking charm, Ticket sentiment and fab image are all pink gem designs.

I have coloured my image with prismas and added glamour dust to her sparkly white bits for some extra bling. I have edged in worn lipstick and have stitched all the edges of my papers and image.

I would like to enter this into Desert Island crafters itinery (pearls, stitching and fabric), Pink elephant stitching, Simon says stamp and show some bling, Bearly mine bring on the bling, Fab and funkys stitching challenge, Craft us crazy anything goes, Aud sentiments anything goes, Meljens sparkle shine and glitter, Papercrafting journey anything goes, Crafts 4 eternity flags, tickets and tags, totally papercrafts xmas in aug and Sarah Hurley stitching challenge.
Please check out what the rest of the team have done with the fab sketch and why not join us for the chance at a fab prize!
Thanks so much for coming by my blog again folks and big hugs to you all

Auck this is just so beautiful, I love the image and the cheesecloth is a beautiful touch. I have a big bag whizzing its way to me, I cant wait to have a play with it. It is amazing for adding that little bit of added texture. Really stunning card. Lee x

Just popped over from the gem challenge.
Doesn't look like a card made in haste at all, esp. with all that stitching. It turned out great and the image is very cute. I recognise the paper. I bought a big stack a couple of years ago but did not know the brand. Thanks for telling me, lol.
