Gorjuss Girl on a Mojo Monday

Well it's Sunday night and here I am with a card that I made today while my cousin was here 'playing' with me ... 

I had this Gorjuss Girl image coloured and have been trying to make a card with her for ages with no success ... It didn't help matters that my cousin's puppy loves to chew anything papercrafty (ribbons, flowers, coloured images lol) and she managed to chew the bottom right corner off the stamp before we noticed what she was doing lol!!  I was following the sketch from Mojo Monday but had to end up covering the chewed corner with the flowers to cover it up so I hope it still meets the sketch ....

I am always amazed at the beautiful cards made by cardmakers such as Camilla, Kat and Kylie who seem to be able to add layer upon layer of paper, lace, doilies, mesh, flowers and ribbon and make the most stunning cards ... so today my challenge was to at least have a go and while it is by no means to their calibre I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

I'm certainly going to keep practicing to see how I go .... a personal challenge!

Anyway, I'm off to think about to feed the family so until next time

  2. Such a pretty card. I really like the distressed background to the main image and love your shabby chic look. I can't believe the puppy chewed your stamp, how naughty!

  5. Your cousins puppy sounds like my cats, who like nothing better than to have access to my craft room so they can play with everything. I love the gorjuss image and your beautiful card. All your layers are just gorgeous and if you hadn't told us we would have been none the wiser of what hides beneath those flowers. Thanks so much for joining us at Paper Cupcakes/TIMITA this fortnight! Good Luck.

  7. Hi Julie,
    What a sweet card! Great coloring and embellishing, I am a pinky mauve kinda girl, so what's not to love? :)

    Thank you so much for visiting my blog and taking the time to comment on my marker wallet. I am beyond thrilled that you like it, as it was so much fun to make and I was excited for the feedback. Best of luck in Krista's drawing. Wishing you a Frilly Frou Frou day, Holly
