A Gem Of A Challenge #50 - My Sketch!...

 Hi all!  Hope you're all well. Not had much time to craft lately. So much going on at school with it being near the end of term. I'll be glad when they break up!

Time for a new challenge over at A Gem Of A Challenge. This time it's my turn to host. Here's my sketch to follow;
I used this fab new 'Pirate Mimi' digi stamp from Pink Gem Designs. As I was short on time I used the pre coloured version. The pre coloured versions are included in your download along with the black line images. I kind of feel like I'm 'cheating' when I used pre! But they are very useful when short on time.

MME Miss Caroline Papers,
Lacey Nesties,
Prima and Wild Orchid flowers,
Shell beads from stash,
Tim Holtz mini vial (filled with seed beads),
Making Memories Sentiment.
Antique Linen Distress Stickles.

Hope you'll join us. I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for my 'Top 3'.
Please check the challenge blog for prize details and to see what the rest of the DT have been up to.

Thanks for stopping by,
Jenny xx
