Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend?

Ooooh! Happy Sunday All!
This is a holiday weekend here in Edinburgh & as I worked on Saturday,
 I'm going to make the most of my Monday off!
I might even have a little lie in!!!
As you know, every Sunday, it's time for the new challenge at 
This weeks theme is Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend!
We want to see diamonds (well gems!lol) on your project!
Here's my card.


lol! I made a Diamond Top Card!
We are sponsored this week by the lovely Joanna Sheen


The prize on offer is a £10 voucher for her fabby online shop!



The team have used Belinda in Reflection this week.
I think you'll agree she's a little gem of an image!
I coloured her up with Promarkers then cut her out with a Nellie Snellen die.
I added a couple of diamonds to Belinda's hat & top  & did the same on her reflection


I added some punched leaves which I layered up then topped with a little flower
to which I added a little gem at the centre


The papers I have used are Papermania as are the gems. 
The sentiment is from Sentiments 4 You & is coloured with  promarkers &
matted on to a diamond of the design paper
I mounted the sentiment diamond using foam squares &
then added more of the punched leaves  around it!

Ths picture shows the fold used to create the Diamond Top card.
 looks tricky but it's so easy to do!
As I type up this post & look at the pics, I notice I forgot to put the diamonds 
on the corners of the top section of my card! (Silly Billy!)
I was in such a rush to get halfway decent pics while it was dry!
I hope you can find time to join in this challenge it's easy peasy this week!
