Sweet as Sugar!

Evening all! What a beautiful day it had been here in Yorkshire. Hope you've had a lovely day wherever you are! Well I really wanted to enter The Sugar Bowls challenge this time around as the prize is the whole set of the new gorjuss girls, set 3, not yet released!! What a totally fab prize!! So in celebration of this prize I have used one of my trusty GG images from set 1! I just love them. I followed the sketch designed by Lilian and also the added extra of using Kraft. I just can't get enough of this at the moment! It seems to be appearing on almost all of my cards! I also used the colour combo over at SCS this week which is pink and green!

I coloured this wonderfully 'gorjuss' image in with my distress inks and cut her out with my curved rectangle nesties. The papers are from BG two scoops pad and papermania. CS is kraft. Felt flower is from making memories and the others are my new prima hydranga flowers. Pearl brad from my stash. Sentiment is from Craft work cards. Adhesive pearl gems were one of my purchases from the Hobby House stall at the craft fair last weekend! I distressed all the edges of my CS and sentiment with my distress inks and a cosmetic sponge, my new discovery of this week! Such a great technique!!

I really enjoyed making this card and I loved using this sketch, now I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed that I might be the lucky winner of the new GG set 3!!

Off for my tea now, yummy homemade lasagne, my favourite meal of all time!!

Thanks for stopping by. TTFN!

Hugs, Vicky -x-
