Thoughtful


Our new challenge at A Gem of a Challenge is more than one fold. I love making easel cards, they are definitely my favourite fancy fold card and they go well at craft fairs too. It is no secret that I love the vintage Pink Gem images, well I love all the PG images actually. The vintage images are so lovely to colour and great for practicing hair and skin. Sophie definitely looks like she has a lot to think about doesn't she.
