First Gorjuss Creation!

I'm sure I'm not alone when I say this - I was so desperate to ink up one of these beauties! They are simply scrummy and an absolute pleasure to colour! In particular, the hair lends itself perfectly to shading, the results are really satisfying. This card is for my Sister-in-Law Jo who has a birthday early in April. You can hopefully see that I have die cut the letters on her name and added them to the top, right-hand corner of the card.

I decided that, for a change, I would rummage through my huge collection of 12x12 papers. I always seem to make a bee line for my small Basic Grey pads these days and it's a shame because I have accumulated some yummy papers over the past couple of years. The make of this one is Rico I think, never heard of them before but it's rather scrummy anyway, lol!

Image - Suzanne Woolcott - Gorjuss
Papers - Rico
Decorative Stamp - Karrs
Die - Nestabilities Scalloped and Plain Circles
Colouring - ProMarkers
Flowers - Prima
Embellishments - Ribbon, Mini Brads and Pearls from my stash
Accents - Dovecraft Shimmer Chalks

Before I go I would just like to thank Kathleen for this award. It goes right back to you Kathleen and I would also like to give it to everyone on the Colour Create Design Team.

Hope you all have a really lovely weekend. I'm looking forward to our new Colour Create challenge on Sunday - you will need to get your thinking caps on for this one... hee hee!!
