CAS Gorjuss girl!

Evening all! Well I have been busy working for the past 7 days so not muct time for crafting! I did manage to make my mums birthday card over the wekeend but I won't be able to post it until after the 26th as she is a visitor to my blog and I don't want to spoil the surprise! So today's card is a card I made for Shary a while back now to say thank you for some images she sent me.

I used one of the images from the GG2 set, coloured with my distress inks and cut out before matting it onto my matt with 3d foam. I am not too keen on the skull in her hair so I covered it with a flower gem, much prettier! I just love GG images and I adore the images in set 3 but I have spent far too much on craft stash lately and will just have to save up for them!! The CS is coredinations, the paper from Basic Grey {sorry I can't remember which pad, maybe sugared!}. The sentiment and the scalloped border punch I used to create the scalloped border are both from SU and available from the wonderful Jules! I just love the CAS look, I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but I do sometimes agree with the old addage less is more. Although lately my cards have had less and less visible 'white' on them!! Lol!

Well it's my DO tomorrow. I've got to take a trip into Leeds to take something back but then I'm hoping to have some crafty time!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and leave me such lovely comments. I really appreciate each and every one of your comments!

Hugs, Vicky -x-

I think you are really brave to have a ' bare ' card, we all use far too much stuff these days, must be becuase the papers are always so delish ! Enjoy your DO, hugs, Claire x
