Just Gorjuss!

I used to colour up this Gorjuss girl all of the time, I'm feeling guilty that she's been neglected but I bet I'm not the only one to get carried away using new images over old.

The bit I love about this image is colouring those stripy stockings, aren't they the best to play with!

I used some scrummy Pink Polka Dot Bias Binding from LCI (don't forget to check out their 1/2 price Cling stamp sale) , added some rik rak on top and some punched flowers with large pearl centres.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Sugar Bowl sketch 81, Stripes,
Love to Create 10, Birthday,
MIM84, Anything goes,
Squirrel and Fox 15, Things with wings,
C4C131, Blue & White +1,
Allsorts 149, bottom left to top right,
TPC111, Bottom line,
Opus Gluei 128, use something you used to use.

Thanks for stopping by,
please scroll down for my earlier post today.

What an absolutely spectacular card! I love the happy feel and lovely colors you've chosen. Your motif is so pretty and the idea of doing justice to those striped tights is something I must just view - I'm afraid I'd mess them up!

This is a lovely lovely card and I thank you for sharing it with us at Opus Gluei, hope we entice you back for more challenges with us!
