Gorjuss Princess with Teddy Bear and I make a birthday card

Ok, so once again, it has been quiet on my blog... But, I do have a reason... I have an assignment due this week, as well as some unexpected bad news, so, I haven't had any craft mojo... at all! Until, today... I had a lovely friend drop round, and bring me flowers *squee!*
And, I got to colour in a stamp I received in the mail a few days ago, that I hadn't had time to play with yet.... I also received the Bloggess' book in the mail on Thursday, so my nose has been buried in it! It's just as funny as her blog, and just as scattered and awesome.... Anyway, onto my card -
I used some cardstock mum had cut up for me last time she was here (I think it is Cherry Cobbler, but could be wrong..) and patterned papers from Simple Stories Fabulous 6x6 Paper Pad, My Minds Eye and one a little piece from some 6x6 papers Annmaree sent me. The oval is cut out using my newest addition to my ever growing Die collection - Spellbinders Classic Ovals... I then put lots of dimensionals on the back of this Gorjuss Image and attached her. I coloured her using my Stampin' Write Markers, and a Blender Pen. If you know me, you'd know I can't go past putting ribbon on a card right now.... And this on was no exception... I used Ivory Cotton Twill  and some Stampin' Up! Seam Binding Ribbon to tie a bow. I stamped the sentiment, (from PTI) and added some silver stickles to her crown and her teddy's crown and three little rhinestones to finish off this card. 
I am entering this into three challenges, the first is the sketch from iSpy Sketches, next up is the two anything goes challenges over at Ribbon Carousel and Simon Says Stamp
Thanks for dropping by :)
