Distressing can be gorjuss!

A good saturday morning to you all! The sun is shining and hopefully it will be a beautiful day, as I am going to a garden party at my mum's today to celebrate her 50th birthday tomorrow!

Well I am still on a high after being invited to be on the Sugar Nellie DT, it's just a shame that my friends and family don't understand how important this is to me, I think they are starting to get fed up of me talking about it! Lol!

Today's card was made for this weeks Creative Inspirations challenge of distressing. Although I love the CAS look I justed wanted to prove that you can still do CAS with distressing!


I just had to use another of the gorjuss girls from set 3 {sent to me by the lovely Bernie}, I just can't stop using them, they're so adorable! I coloured her in with my koh-i-noor pencils and sansodor before cutting her out with my craft knife, adhered to card base with 3d foam for added dimension! The papers are from the MME asparagus paper pack, just so yummy! The ribbon is from hobby craft (49p for 5m!). I made the frame from white CS before embossing it with a cuttlebug folder and adding distress inks. The sentiment is from HOTP and to finish it off, yet more capaccino pearls! Gorjuss girls and pearls seem to be my favourite combination at the moment! Lol!

Thanks to everyone who continue to send their congratulations and well wishes, your lovely comments mean so much to me! I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I hope to catch up with you all tomorrow whan I get back from my mums!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
