Laura, Don't Look!!!

Sunday, 3 May 2009

Hi all!
It was one of my forum friends birthday the other day and because of the forum being down for a few days, a lot of us are late with our cards for her. Sorry Laura!
So she probably doesn't actually have her card from me yet but I'm gonna show it here anyway...So please leave now Laura (if you haven't already gotten my card that is!! lol!)

I used Bev's fabby first sketch for this one for the Stamp with fun challenge

And I came up with this:

I cut into my brand new set of Gorjuss Girls set 2 and I just love them! I coloured her with my promarkers and highlighted with white glaze pen and clear stardust pen. I used Bo Bunny Alissa papers with contrasting black. The flower was cut from the paper and a couple of punched daisy's added with a black gem stone brad. I also used my favourite MSBP too!

Here's a close up of the Gorjuss girl!

I sort of semi followed the sketch again for the inside:

And I used a Gorjuss girl from set 1:

Coloured in the same way as the one on the front.
So I hope you had a really happy birthday Laura - and sorry it's late! (although it just makes your birthday last longer, so it's not all bad!!)

I'd also like to say how sorry I am to hear the very sad news from another of my forum friends whose brother was tragically killed in an accident. My thoughts are with you, Lynsey, at this terrible time. xxx

An absolute stunner of a card Sheena! I adore it and I'm sure your friend will too. I love the way you've decorated the inside to match, and your beautiful Gorjuss girls look even more 'gorjuss' on those nesties!
