Gorjuss Girl

Hello friends.
I hope you are all enjoying your week. I am off work this week as I have a trapped nerve in my arm and cannot do any lifting. Thank goodness I can still use my fingers to type. It is our daughters birthday today and  when she was in my craft room last week she commented on how much she loved the Gorjuss girl stamps. I wonder if she was hinting. Well if she was it did the trick cos here is her birthday card.
It is the first time I have made a Gorjuss girl card and I loved making it. 

The papers are from the Gorjuss girl collection which I purchased along with the stamps at The Range.

The butterflies are Tim Holtz over the edge die called Butterflight. The Precious Hearts dies are by Memory box and the flower on the right is also a Die-namics die from the Range.

Nearly forgot to mention - she has been coloured using Pro Markers. Haven't quite mastered the shading of black hair yet!!!

I am entering this card into the following challenges

The Squirrel and the Fox - Here Comes the Girls

Hi Sharon, oh this is such a gorgeous Gorjuss card!! Looks to me like you've done wonderfully on the hair - I must admit I tend to avoid black hair as it never goes just how I want!!

Just Beautiful Sharon! Anyone would be blessed to receive one of your cards, they are works of art. I love all the elements and layers! Also, Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I really appreciate it.

Donna Ellis said...

Sharon, a beautiful card! How did your daughter like it? I really like the earth tone colors selected. As for the shading in her hair, I am just learning, too. I thought her hair looked remarkable, so you must have done a good job, right? The "dotted and ribboned" shading around your Gorjuss Girl image looks great! It is wonderful the way the butterflies are flying delightedly, right off the card. I especially like the stitched effect on the edges, and the dimension the stripes have afforded your background panel. A beautiful card! Happy Birthday to your sweet daughter! hugs, de

Wendy Nicola Jackson said...

Ooh I LOVE this card! Your colour scheme is fab and I'm a big GG fan. Beautifully coloured image, that hair is fab! Love the dies and extra embellies you've used. Really pretty card. Hugs, Wends xxx

Helen said...

Happy Birthday to your daugher, I'm sure she'll be delighted with the Gorjuss card you made. I quite like these stamps but sadly don't come across them very often. Perhaps I need to look a bit harder!
