Gorjuss Girls at the beach!

Hi All,

Hope you're having a good Monday. I've managed to make another card, this one took forever! I saw the little gorjuss girl stamp and just new I had to use it; but then I found it really hard coming up with papers that would work for the rest of the card! I'm happy with the end result.

I need to find a new way of lighting my cards, the colours come out all wonky!

Here are the challenges I've made it for:
Moving Along with the Times - I used their sketch and beach theme.
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Paper Piecing






Here's a close up of her...



Here's how I made her:
Stamp: Gorjuss Girl from Set 3. Painted with H2Os and dress paper pieced with BG lemonade paper pad. I used my quickie glue pen on her arm bands and sprinkled Doodlebug Sugar Coating Glitter in Orange.
Papers: backing papers is from Dovecraft Fairies Set, the rest is from stash.
Ribbon is from Making Memories textured tape kids max set.
Fabric flowers are from stash, mulberry ones are Prima.
Buttons are from Papermania.
Rub on letters are from Doodlebug all mixed up swimming pool small.
Cardstock and gems are from Stash.

Hope you like it!
