Sugar Nellie - Gorjuss Girl

Good morning sugar fans! 

Wow, another Wednesday is here - it's it just me or are the days whizzing by? One good thing is that spring is seems to have finally sprung --- yay!! Now as I walked home from work I can hear the birds going crazy singing to each other. It's so fabulous to listen to, that it made my heart happy!

Anyhow, onto my Sugar Nellie Design Team card for you today, I thought I would give a Gorjuss girl stamp an airing she's called 'I Give you My Heart', along with one of my fav colour combos.  Funkykits (the home of Sugar Nellie) have a great collection of Gorjuss Girl stamps, there's so many to choose from. Many of the stamps are no longer produced and once they are gone, they're gone. So grab yours while you still can!!

Here's What I Did
I started with a 5" x 5" white card base which I matted with green cardstock and covered with LOTV patterned paper. I stamped my Gorjuss girl and her book onto watercolour card then using Distressing Ink pens I coloured them both in and cut them out. I die cut a green frame which I added to my card with foam tape. The girl, book and die cut 'happy' and hearts were added both inside and outside of the frame. To finish off I added a few sequins and some white dots to her cheeks and book.
