A little gem

There was a theme of Burgundy,Pink and Green set at  A Gem of A Challenge along with an inspirational photo:

I’ve always loved this colour combo and it holds a special place in my heart too as they were my chosen Wedding Day colours.Originally it was going to be just pink and green so I think when I threw in this deep red shade my Step Mum was quite taken aback.But once she saw how well they worked together she soon came round.

I’ve used this colour scheme a lot in my cards in the past so I think that’s why when I went through my stash I found I had little of these colours left so I’ve had use some artistic license with the backing papers but I’ve stuck to them in the image … well except for the hint of sky… and I had to tie it in with the papers.

The stamp is a Pink Gem Designs one and she goes by the name of Summer Milly.She’s such a cutie as are all of the other images found there.I’ve coloured her with a selection of Promarkers,including Burgundy.The card is from my stash and the papers are a freebie from Summertime Designs.I’ve used a Hydrangeas Martha Stewart Edge punch to create the floral border.The bottom of the card has been embellished with some raffia lace and a length of Kars Christmas ribbon.The flowers are Prima and I’ve enhanced them using the same Promarkers as used in the image.I placed a spacer charm in the middle before adding the brad.

This card also qualifies for the following challenges :
