A Gem of a Challenge

Have you done the Blog Hop as part of Pink Gem's birthday celebrations yet?  If not you only have  one week left to take part.  There are some fab prizes up for grabs so why not give it a go.  It is running alongside the current challenge which is a sketch challenge.
Here's the sketch for the challenge:
Here is the card I decided to do for the challenge:
I have used one of my old Greeting Farm images that I received in a RAK ages ago.  I have had this coloured up for a while but just never got around to using it - until now.  I used watercolour pencils for the image and matted and layered with purple and lemon card.
The circle at the back is one of Susie's fab die cuts from Die Cut Dreams and the purple paper down the right hand side is from a Papermania paper pack called Amethyst Infusion.  The base DP is from a DCWV adhesive paper pad. 
The flower is from my stash as is the pipe cleaner and the pin (which you can buy from Nikki at Bunny Zoe's Crafts).  The sentiment is from a Ooh La La CD which are available to buy here.
So, why not give it a go - you never know you could get lucky!  After all, you gotta be in it to win it!!
