2nd its their challenge
26-PinkGem-design A stitch in time
Having started with a white card 7"x5" All the papers used came from Pink Petticoat l printed Sweet Wishes background , Cherries Crimson, Really big Dots and Sundaes, the image is from Pink Gems which l won in a challenge recently, the image is Ice Cream Ellie she's Gorgeous! this l coloured with Promarkers and cut it out and layered with 3d sticky pads onto a plain Doily which l had from my stash, Flowers from the PinkGems win, Blue gem stones & Green peel offs from my stash  Sentiment is part of the image which says
Have A Sweet Day!! hope you like what you see any comments that you leave are gratefully received and l always read them 
Many Thanks Sandra H xx
