I'm a Guest Designer at A Gem of a Challenge (Pink Gem image)

Hi everyone,

Today I'm honoured to be a Guest Designer at A Gem of a Challenge. They were one of the first challenge sites I found and I have been desperately trying to win some images of theirs forever hehe! So I jumped at the chance when offered a GD spot as I'd then get to create with this gorgeous digi below.

Their challenge theme this time is Spring is in the air, my personal favourite. I have used leaves, grass and pearls from my company Flourish with a Bling who are posting orders worldwide free this month, see below for more details.

Thanks so much, A Gem of a Challenge, for having me as a guest designer, it's been lovely.

Flourish with a Bling have free shipping on all orders over $20AUD for the month of April! This includes Australia and worldwide! No matter how large the order, there's no postage cost. I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique products that we've designed ourselves. Click HERE to be taken to our easy-to-use website.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
