Pink Gem DT Card...and four challenges!

Gosh, can't believe it's been a week since I last posted! This week has been manic. The kids went back to school, I had to give the house a thorough going over, catch up on the piles of washing (with 4 kids, this is a BIG job!), and restock the kitchen cupboards with groceries.
So this weekend I thought I'd better make the effort and do a DT card for Pink Gem Designs.
You would not believe how long this card took to make. Tiredness and lack of mojo resulted in a lot of faffing and fiddling. Anyway...it's done now, and yes it's a Christmas card!!
This really cute 'Pink Gem Designs' stamp is called 'Winter Mimi' and you can find her here.
I love 'sitting' stamps as it's fun to pose them on a Nestie, or a punched border, or on a ribbon...
Here I have sat her inside a Nestabilies circle and Big Scalloped Circle.
She is coloured with Promarkers and blinged up with Stickles Stardust.

I have also used;
Large 8x8 scalloped card blank (Craft Superstore)
Pink Petticoat Snowflake Downloaded Paper,
X Cut snowflake punches,
Sizzix Sizzlits Twinkle Toes Alphabet,
Sizzix Sizzlits corner flourish #2,
Martha Stewart zig zag punch,
Charms & ribbons from stash.

I will enter this card into these challenges;

My Time To Craft for quick quotes (Let It Snow!)
Creative Inspirations for the sketch.
Charisma Cardz for the quote (Let it Snow!)
I Love Promarkers for 'black, white plus one other colour' (lilac)

Thanks for stopping by!
