Isn't she Gorjuss :-)

My first Gorjuss girl :-) This fab stamp was in the fabby blog candy that I was very lucky to win in Kimmi's Blog Candy :-)

I coloured her with copics,,,, you have to excuse the card I used ,,, I used the 'wrong' one so the colours haven't blended as well as they could have done ,, still OK ish tho so I didn,t start all over again !! I made her petticoat with glittered vellum and 3D'd her dress ,, pretty :-)
The papers I used are basic grey sugared papers and whitewash coredinations ( also in the blog candy :-)) The flower is Prima and the ribbon is papermania. The sentiment is from a Simon Says Clear Stamps SIMPLY THE BEST SENTIMENTS Exclusive Set
The charm tag was made with a cuttlebug die,, which was in a blog candy i won from Wendy :-) I am sooo lucky eh !! :-)

I followed hazel's fabulous sketch for the Moving Along With The Times Challenge AND when I went to get the link just now I realised I should have added a button :-( ughughugh,,,, sorry :-( I forgot :-(

I did add a tag tho so I can enter it for the Charisma Cards Challenge :-) I will be their GD for the next 2 weeks :-)

The theme on the Cupcake Craft Challenge is a colour challenge and we have to use Pink/Green/Brown :-),,, ticked those boxes too.

I also masked the gorjuss girl and stamped the flowers ( from the Magnolia Summer Collection) behind her so it also qualifies for the Stampin for the Weekend Challenge

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

I have 2 separate blog candy's at the moment,,, a fab House Mouse stamp and a set of Simon Says Stamp exclusives. If you would like to enter you can see the details at the top of my blog :-)

For my card I used the Simon Says Clear Stamps DREAM PARIS ROME NEW YORK Exclusive set

I used brown coredinations and some patterned paper by Basic Grey which was also distressed with antique linen distress ink. I inked a craft sheet with faded jeans, shabby shutters and broken china, spritzed with water and swirled white card around in it. When it was dry I stamped a Tim Holtz ornate collage then overstamped the Eiffel tower image with adirondack ink.

The key and oval shapes are grungeboard that I smothered in shabby shutters crackle paint and when it was dry I sponged black ink into all the cracks.

I used a Making Memories 'Dream eyelet' and a Tim Holtz muse token as well as a couple of Tim Holtz mini paper clips and game spinner.

I followed the fab sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge and am also entering this in the Cute Card Thursday Challenge who are asking us to use eyelets :-)
