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

Hi everyone,

I am excited to be a Guest Designer for A Gem of a Challenge again, this time their challenge is "Your favourite colour combo". I love pink, brown and white together although I have soooo many favourite colour combos, do you too? Isn't this sweet girl so adorable? You can find her at Pink Gem Designs and the floral swing is by Bugaboo stamps.

I have used pearls and glossy leaves from my company, Flourish with a Bling, who have 50% off everything this month, please click HERE to check out our store. We only charge actual shipping costs (no handling, packaging etc) so if you only want a couple of items that will fit in a letter envelope it's less than $3 to post worldwide.

Have you seen I have 3 x vouchers up for grabs this week? I would love you to enter as there's only about 48 hours left and not many people have entered boohoo!! Click HERE to check it out.

Flourish with a Bling have a 50% off sale all throughout May, the only items not discounted are the already amazingingly priced value packs, everything else is half off!! I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique products and we post worldwide. Please email if you would like rough estimates of shipping, if we can send it as a large letter we will or perhaps get your friends to all buy too and share the postage! If you're order is over $200AUD we will pay half the shipping (international orders).
