My First Gorjuss Girl

Hiya! Just a quick post before I scoot off to work...I treated myself to a couple of the Gorjuss Girls stamps and they arrived on Saturday! So here is my first card using my lovely stamp...


I've used the fab sketch by Mina from Truly Scrumptious, the theme this week is Flower Power. I've decided seeing as I've hand cut the oval I'm actually quite pleased with the finished card. I love this colour combination, I got my inspiration for this from my stripped paper (wish I knew where I could get more of this but had it ages). The flowers are DIY ones, I enjoyed doing these and don't think they look all that bad. The ribbon reads "dream" and the sentiment means "together". Both are from Artemio. I've also added a bit of clear gloss to her hair to give it extra shine!

Enjoy the sunshine xx
