A Gorjuss Birthday!

TGIF to ya! I am so happy it is Friday! It has been a long week for me and I am really looking forward to the weekend!

I have a new birthday card to share with you today. This Gorjuss Girl stamp is not new, but it is new to me! My good friend, Lesley, let me borrow a set of them to give them some love. (Thanks, Lesley!!) I really wanted to do some sewing on this card, but my sewing machine broke yesterday while threading the bobbin. I did take it in to the shop and it will be back in about a week. It is a dinosaur, but a wonderful machine - I think it was made in the 50's! They don't make them like that anymore. Oh well, I could not wait to use my new MME Home DP from Michael's. I picked this up last week - it is so pretty and sparkly! It goes great with Always Artichoke, Confetti White (both SU) & Summer Sunrise (PTI). I cut this Gorjuss girl out and popped her up on the background. This particular stamp also had a bird on it, but I did not want to use that part on this card. Ok, I put lots of elements on this card - hopefully it's not too busy! I used primas, pearls (Martha Stewart), my beloved fern punch (MS), Nesties, a CB embossing folder, and my newest punch by MS - doily lace punch. I have been drooling over that punch for a while and finally took the plunge - I {heart} it! Here is a close-up of this sweetheart. The 'spot' above her head is not a mess-up, it's actually a part of the paper. Confetti White card stock has lots of little spots & dots in it. I sponged some Summer Sunrise around the oval. I used the following Copics on this girl: Skin - E0000, 000, 00, 11, R20; Dress - Y32, 35, 38, Copic Blender 0, G21; Hair - E50, 53, 55

I will be adding this to my Etsy store soon!

Have a wonderful weekend! I hope to be back to show you more goodies this weekend! :) ~Tori
