I placed my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment which was created in the same way as the image and then placed in the bottom right hand corner. To finish of I have used some pearl swirls down the right hand side.

Challenge #219 - Its a Mans World - Pink Gem Designs

Good Morning Gemsters, I hope you all enjoyed your Bank Holiday, I certainly took advantage of the heat and got my carpets shampooed something I had been waiting for to get them dry and Im really delighted with the results. How long they will stay looking sparkling is another matter as its still a building site in the field next door to us and of course all the dust, mud and grit soon get carried into our house and onto the kitchen carpet.
Anyway this weeks theme is all for the men in our life so the theme is

Its a Mans World

and we are its being hosted by Helen one of our Design Team members, and we are of course being sponsored by Pink Gem Designs and that means Janet Roberts


who not only owns the website Pink Gem Designs but is also the designer and creator of our gorgeous images, so do go and visit her website and see for yourself what stunning and usable images, papers there are to buy.
And now to reveal my own card I hope you like it

 Using Relaxing Dave

and you will find him here, I printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him, afterwards I used a Nestabilitie die to cut him out and a larger one for the mount out of red card. You might wonder why I have put a strip of red ribbon around the right edge, I accidentally cut the end of and have to stick it back together and hopefully it covers the cut.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of red card, the papers are from Sweetshoppe Designs and I have used four of them and layered them as shown in my photo. I placed my mounted image towards the left and the sentiment below it towards the right.

Challenge #217 - Childrens Playtime - Pink Gem Designs

Good Morning Gemsters, well it looks at last as if Spring is on its way my Magnolia Stella is starting to flower and the Daffodils are at the best so I think it will only be a short time before the children will be out playing instead of sitting in front of the TV.
This weeks Challenge is all about

Children's Play Things

And its the theme that Marianne has chosen for us to create our cards for but before I show you what I have been up to, I must let you know who is sponsoring us and that is Janet Roberts of Pink Gem Designs go and visit the Pink Gem Designs website and see for yourself
 
And for my own Card I used this gorgeous image:-


I wasnt aware till today that the sentiment has slipped so I hope you will forgive me, I suspect I corrected it before I post it of to one of our grandchildren so its a bit late to put a new photo on here. The image is "Andy on a Tyre Swing" and you will find it here.
I printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him, afterwards I used a rectangle Nestabilitie die to cut him out and a larger one for the mount out of green card. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been treated in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount of green card and the papers are from Sweetshoppe Designs and this set of papers are titled "Playground" (guys) and I have used three of the papers and a border punch down the edge from Martha Stewart. The tree die is a Spellbinders one and I placed this on the left hand side and then punched out the leaves and layered them all over the tree branches. To finish of I popped some red nuvo drops to look like apples. The final flourish is the two kite buttons down the right hand side.
Now that you've seen my Card I do hope you will pop over to Pink Gem Designs Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Children's Playtime" Challenge.
