Totally Gorjuss Challenge - GDT....

Hello,

I hope you are all fit and well and have had a great week. Today I am very excited as I am off to the NEC in Birmingham. I am so looking forward to seeing lots of crafters there and of course shopping it's the law!


I have had the honour of being asked to guest design for the Totally Gorjuss Challenge this week. Thank you so very much for inviting me I was so thrilled to join you. We have been given a sketch to follow designed by  one of the Gorjuss girls Net. Thank you so much Net it was a pleasure to work with.

I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress ink pads. The background is distressed with vintage photo. I have heat embossed the sentiment and the flowers. The little seals on the parcels I have added Glossy Accents for a shine. The leaves are a Martha Stewart punch. The stickle glue I have used is gold and star dust.

Here is the sketch by Net to follow this week.


Thank you so very much for your visit I wish you a wonderful weekend wherever you are and whatever you are doing.

Dear Kim!
Looks like Tilda has a lot of presents to open but I see she has got started. Love that stamp with all the presents. I love the soft way you have colored this card. I have just been coloring some of these Poisettia's myself but they sure don't look as nice as yours.
The black ribbon and dark brads set the whole card off nicely.
Hugs Maz

Hi, Kim. This is so beautiful! Really eye candy!!! Just amazing... I was just looking out of my window, and guess what...? The colours on the sky were the same as on your card!! How fun is that:)
