Sweet Treats at AGOAC

Hello again my lovely friends - as promised I'm back in the blink of an eye with my second DT post of the day.
Please scroll down or click here to see my first post.

So this time I would like to share my inspiration for the new challenge over at 

and this week Team Gems are sharing some 


Here's what I did

I started by embossing some white card using That Special Touch Mask 'Delicate' and then inked over the embossed areas whilst the card was still in the mask.
Then I die cut the diagonal strip with Sue Wilson Diagonals Heart Collection.
I took a strip of pink card and covered it with a double sided adhesive sheet and then added Stampendous Irrisdescent Glitter - so blingalicious :o)
Mat and layered onto pink card and finished with some white organza ribbon and pink pearl bead string.
The adorable image is Pink Gem Designs Chloe with Cupcake (sssshhh don't tell anyone but I think of all Janet's adorable little ladies Chloe is my favourite) 
Colouring Medium: Copics
Sentiment: Tonic Studios  

The prize as always is:

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

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