Anything But Square at A Gem of a Challenge

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
I have two DT makes to share with you today and my first is for the new challenge over at


and this week our very lovely Sue has picked the theme


I thought it was about time I made another circle card as I haven't done one in ages and this is what I came up with:

I created the background by stamping the Easter Egg image with Perfect Medium and then heat embossed with True White Embossing Powder before inking with Distress Inks - the heat embossing acts as a resist :o)

Image: Pink Gem Designs 'Jodie with Easter Egg'
Colouring Medium: Copics
Spellbinders: Lacey Circles - Embossed with Darice Flower embossing folder and inked with Distress Ink
Card Base: Spellbinders 'Grand Decorative Circles'
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat

As always the lovely Janet is offering 1 lucky winner:

2 Individual Digi images
of the winners choice from PINKGEM DESIGNS.....

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the fabulous inspiration from my lovely DT buddies.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Brown Sugar - Easter 
Chocolate, Coffee and Cards - Something Yummy to Eat or Drink
Crafts 4 Eternity - Easter 
Fun with Shapes - Easter 
Jo's Scrap Shack - Happy Easter
Simply Papercraft - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - Easter 
Inky Impressions - Bold and Bright 

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the weather stays as nice as it has been the past few days this weekend as we are planning to sort the pots out in the back garden - so a trip to the garden centre after my DH gets back from Yoga - just in time for lunch :o)

Thanks for popping by to see me today - I'll be back in the blink of an eye with my second DT make.
