My First Gorjuss Card

Hello Everyone

Eleri's friend next door has her birthday this week, so I have made her a card:

The image is a Sugar Nellie Gorjuss stamp. I've had this stamp for more than a year but this is the first time I've used her (naughty huh?!). I've coloured her with Promarkers. The BP is from a Kate Knight paper pack. I love the sparkly paper behind the image, its from my stash. I made the three ribbon roses - think I need to watch the video again as they did not work as well as I'd hoped!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

The Sugar Bowl - the sketch I followed, with birthday theme
Top Tip Tuesday - flowers
Simon Says Stamp - Bingo - gems, glitter/glimmer, ribbon
Kaboodle Doodles - Bling it up
Passion for Promarkers - Let it shine

Thanks for looking. Enjoy the rest of the week.

Oh - for the people who read my previous post - I have posted the thank you card off to the hospital - I hope they like it and know that it really is heartfelt thanks!

Love, Andrea

Such YUMMY colours in your card love them, and thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. I think you should make the little pouches for your daughters party, the girls will love them, you will need to go a touch larger though.
