Gem of a Sketch

Over on Gem of a Challenge we have a Gem of a sketch, sorry couldn't resist but its true we have a fabulous sketch with the option of decorating the inside.
I've seen some fabulous cards using this stamp so I had to buy it and this is my attempt, pretty sure she won't stay uninked for long. The papers are from  a papermania pack and I put brad in the middle of the wheeels.
I have to confess I rarely decorate inside my card, with all the colouring, cutting out and putting everything together takes a while and by the time I finished, I'm ready to move on.
So I stood back admire my card I made and forgot to the option. I did have a feeling something was missing. I realised a few days later when I went to upload my card, now I know its an option but being on the DT I felt it was my place to do it.

I went back to my desk to discover that the spotty pink paper had all gone and I had one bit of the pink gingham. So I had to gut the gingham so I could use it on both sides. The white square on the right is for writing your message and I embossed some white card to use on the left. Phew I was lucky and I don't think it looks too bad.
Now we have some fabulous prizes this month and I may have to edit this post cos I may miss some. The DT choose the top 5 and all those of you of have used a Pink Gem Design one of you will be randomly picked to win two of Pink Gem Stamps.
Also my team-mate Mandy is having a birthday this month and she is giving a prize of two Pink Gem stamps to her favourite card using a Pink Gem stamp and a prize of two Pink Gem stamps to her favourite card not using a Pink Gem Stamp. Hope that makes sense, I just know it a prize month over on Gem of Challenge.
