Gorjuss Girl Card

Wow, what a fabulous day it has been here in Costa Del Hillsborough. The sun really has been out all day today, it was warm outside at 7.30am when we set off on our weekly shopping trip to the supermarket. 
Although it is late evening now it is still very warm outside, and noisy!! there is a brass band practising somewhere not sure where but not too far away. I don't mind listening to a brass band now and then, but not when they are practising!!

When I came in out of the garden, BH was watching football so I decided to sort through some of my craft stuff. I have bought some more storage boxes to organise my stash but I still need more. While I was sorting I found a box of die cut decoupage Gorjuss girls. So I abandoned the sorting and made a card.

The papers are from a Basic Grey 6x6 pad, Sugar Rush. Love the colours in this range pink, lime green, orange, grey and mauve blue, lovely.

Punched flowers using EK Success large and small daisy, medium scalloped circle, MS Cosmos, butterfly, leaf, branch and border punch. Viva pen pearl centres for the flowers, two heart pins and a Craftwork cards birthday greeting to finish off
