Gorjuss in pink!
This is my entry for http://stampinfortheweekend.blogspot.com/ the challenge there is Pink and Grey! The card is pink honestly!! I have chosen such a delicate shade that it is barley showing up! have tried all sorts of things with my camera but this is the best I can get!
I very rarely put the colours together, yes I know this is a classic combo! however when I was 7 I got to choose the colours of my bedroom and this was the combo I went for. You have never seen so much pink, frills, girly stuff in your life! I think I thought I was a princess living in a castle! however as we didn't have a lot financially I was 17 before the decor got changed in my room... I cant tell you how sick I was of pink and grey by that point!! whilst making this card I was getting total flashbacks of that room. Now in my 30's the thought of it actually made me giggle!!
Anyway back to the card, the grey paper is from "creative imaginations" and the pink paper is from "Sandylion" I have overlayed the card with some DB vellum. My Gorjuss girl has been paper pieced so that her dress is the same as the pink background paper. I have used my nesties to create the little frame and I have added some faux stitching to the frame. and I have finished off with DB vellum flowers, some little gems and a little bit of stickles on her dress.
This card was great in my head, but I don't think it has translated very well in reality, I am not that happy with it! but hey ho that's the way it goes sometimes............
