Gorjuss Girl

Here's a quick post, as I need to get to bed after a hectic weekend. But I threw together this lil' card very quickly on Saturday, for my daughter Georgie to take to her first birthday invite since we've been in New Zealand. I didn't have a card ready, as I've been planning my lil' dude Zac's birthday on Sunday, so hurredly grabbed an image I'd previously coloured and a strip of paper to add some interest, a DCWV sentiment sticker and there you have it. One 'clean and simple' birthday card, ready to go.

The image is a lovely stamp from the Gorjuss range of stamps at Funky Kits, that I've had for some time called Poppy Fields. I just love these characters and have several more I need to ink up yet. This wee doll standing in the poppies is one of my favourites though. I've coloured her using my fab Promarker pens and added a strip of paper from stash and a lovely birthday greeting from a handy DCWV 'Quote Sticker Stack', which is perfect for those last minute quick makes. I was literally racing out the door with Georgie, so there was no time to find the 'right flower' or any gems to finish the card, so it's as CAS as they get!! But I quite like it's simplicity, I must say. I managed to lay my hands on just the right piece of paper to back the image, and hastily if a bit sloppily edged the image in desert sand memento ink, just to set it apart from the white background. A quick application of the sentiment sticker and it was 'job done'.

Thanks for popping in on me lil' blog today. I love our lil' chats ;) Ya'll come back again real soon now.

Hugs, Wends x

I'm a Gorjuss fan too, but that's one I don't have! (Adds to wish list!) Love the pops of red against the white on this card, I'm sure it'll be put pride of place. Thanks for joining us at i Love Promarkers xx

A beautiful card Wendy.
I much prefer the cleaner style of cards so this is right up my street :)
Red and white is always a striking colour combination, and the strip of dotty paper is perfect.
Love it ♥

Big hugs
