Another challenge

This is my 3rd challenge card today. Wow I am doing well!
I followed the sketch by the fantastic Bev over at Stamp With Fun and I added some gems which means I can also enter it for this weeks challenge at Cute Daisy May and I used some gems on my card which means I can also enter it for this weeks challenge which is gems. Bev is guest designer on both challenges this week, what a busy girl you have been this week Bev!
I have stuck to the sketch as it was except used a circle for my image instead of an oval. (got to get some oval nesties next lol)
I have used this image quite a few times since I bought this stamp but I love Sugar Nellie and only have 3 of their stamps so far so I have to use them over and over untill I get more. (that was a huge hint to Barry to buy me some just incase he reads this !!) I bought Porridge the pig at the same time I bought this one and I still haven't inked it up because every card I make I don't think the image goes very well. I think I might have to make it my mission to use poor Porridge on a card in the next few days. I thought I would have another go at sanding the edges of my papers but I kind of took it a bit far and ripped the paper in a few places, so carefully placed flowers and swirls are there to hide that lol. As you can see I am still having some trouble with dangling charms because I don't have jump rings!! This time I used some embroidery thread to see if it would sit better but there's not much improvement lol. A trip to the bead shop is the order of the day me thinks.
Right thats it for me till tomorrow, when I will be showing you my first card as designer for Digital Tuesday Challenge!
