Yes, I know, another one!  I told you I couldn't get enough of these beautiful Pink Gem vintage images, this one's called Martha, you'll find her in the store here.
 She's been coloured with Promarkers, as usual, this time to match my lovely Persimmon stash, which has a vintage feel to it.  The papers, ribbon, die cut shape and sentiment are all from this range, I've had it ages but I still really like it.
I got busy with my punches on this one, creating a punched mat with a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page set, punched flowers with three sizes of Woodware daisy punch, and punched leaves using an Xcut punch and emboss punch.  The flower centres were made by sticking blue pearls into Dark Blue Stickles.
To finish off I added gold gems to the corners and a good sprinkling of blue gems around the flowers.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Dream Valley - #60 - Handmade Flowers
Pile it On - #26 - Bling
As You Like It - #5 - 3 Favourite Embellishments and Why - Handmade flowers - I get real satisfaction making my own and they match the project exactly.  Ribbon with sideways bow - kinda my cardmaking signature, I'm obsessed with ribbon!  Gems - just coz I'm a magpie and like sparkly things!
Crafty Catz - #189 - Sat it With Flowers
Happy Campers - #19 - Bling
Created with Love - #48 - For the Girls
