Gorjuss saturday challenges card!

Here is the card I made for this weeks sketch saturday challenge. I really struggled with this sketch {I'm not sure why as it's nice sketch} and it took me ages to do this card, I'm still not overly happy with it! Now I have'nt stuck to the sketch 100%, but almost, and you can see the original sketch in my card so I hope it still counts! It also meets secret crafter saturdays challenge which is to use the colours pink, turquoise and a hint of brown!

I have used another of the fabulous gorjuss girl stamps and coloured her with my distress inks before cutting out and matting onto a scalloped nestie. The DP are from HOTP {a kit I've had for ages from QVC}, CS from coredinations and I distressed them with my emery board. The sentiment is a papermania freebie and the pearl brads are also from papermania. I embossed the base CS with swiss dots folder before running a pink ink pad over it.

Well I've finished work for the weekend, yay, and I'm off out for a girly tea and catch up with a friend tonight who I haven't seen for about a year! I have no plans for the weekend other than some crafting, so I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend adn a bit of blog hopping!

Enjoy your weekend whatever you're all up to and thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Vicky -x-
