Stampin' Up! Delicate Doilies and I create a card for a friend.

Hi! Today, I finished uni for the semester, and now have three months off before heading back in the new year... So, I came home, relaxed, and was inspired to do some watercolouring, thanks to one of my favourite blog buddies, Annmaree... I made this card
So, I sat with this GorJuss stamp, which I bought a while ago, but haven't coloured very often, as I find her a little difficult to colour nicely... I started off by using darker colours for her clothes, but ditched that idea and switched to pastels instead. I coloured her using my Stampin' Write Markers, and a Blender Pen. Once she was coloured, I cut her out (in two pieces, cause I liked the hair on the first one with dark clothes... typical...) I then sat her to the side to create the rest of the card. The card base is Certainly Celery, layered with a piece of Very Vanilla which has been stamped with the Doilies from Delicate Doilies in So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Pink Pirouette and Sahara Sand. I cut out a scallop circle using the Bigshot, and then embossed it using the Polka Dot embossing folder, and sponged the edges before attaching it to the stamped piece. I then popped the GorJuss image using a whole bunch of dimensionals on the back. Finally, I stamped the sentiment, which is from Hero Arts using Certainly Celery ink and cut it out using my oval punch, I then attached it to a Decorative Label punchie in So Saffron, three little pink rhinestones finish off this card.
I am entering this into three challenges, the first is the Moxie Fab World Celebrating Relationships Challenge, which I chose a card to send to a girlfriend, although this could be for anyone. The second challenge is the Mojo Monday sketch challenge, and last but by no means least, the Lollipop Ladies Sour Worms challenge, with twist of Sparkle... I took my inspiration from the colours, I just muted them a little to work for me :)
As always, thanks for dropping in, I appreciate every comment made, they truly do make my day!
Happy Stamping!
