My Special Guest Designer spot over at PINK GEM Challenges

Wahooooo how cool is this???
a few weeks ago I was kindly asked by Janet of Pink Gem Designs to be their
Special Guest Designer at A Gem of a Challenge for their
December's Monthly Challenge. (Challenge 11) ...
obviously I woz unsure at first as I didnt know what a SGD had to do lolol...
but I soon accepted this wonderful opportunity with great excitement.
Each new Challenge is posted on A Gem of A Challenge on the 8th of each month.
Their DT member Rebekah.... is hosting this month's challenge
and has set the Sketch below for you all to follow....
there is also an added 'optional' extra of distressing the card.
For my card I chose the Pink Gem's stamp 'Winter Hoot' &
coloured it with my Promarkers
and I added a circle sentiment that I created myself
I used my 'Snow Marker' pen for the scarf & hat
I used card from my card stock & also embossed one of the backing papers
using one of my 'snowflake' folders on my Cuttlebug & I also distressed the edges
I used my Martha Stewart Icicle punch & covered with stickles glitter glue
For the large snowflake I used my Marianne Design Creatables die...
then I used myMartha Stewart Snowflake punch for the smaller snowflake
then to finish it off I just added a gem
& this is Rebekah's fantastic sketch that we all had to follow 8oD
Good Luck everyone & TFL xXx
