Totally Gorjuss 4 Bling!!

Here we are at the 4th Totally Gorjuss challenge already. This time it is bling and we all love bling, don't we? I am still in Christmas mode so I have used this lovely Gorjuss Girl image with what I imagine is her letter to Santa lol!

I used the lovely sketch from Truly Scrumptious who also want 3 flowers, 3 brads and 3 jewels or pearls. I used some lovely new Paper Adventures - Holiday Joy DP that I won from scrapjackie who was giving away blog candy every day last week. Thanks a lot Jackie. I got lots of matching DP, jewels, funky fibres and stamped images. These will be lovely for my Christmas cards.

The lovely image is coloured with Promarkers as usual and her hair is highlighted with a white Inkssentials opaque gel pen and I doodled round the image with a black American Crafts precision pen. The Creative Inspirations challenge blog is looking for doodling so I am going to enter there too. I glittered the edges of the flowers, which are cut out with EK Success punches, and added red jewels. I also used a Sakura clear glitter gel pen to add glitter to the brads! The flowers and sentiment are on foam pads for a bit of dimension.

This close up shows the glitter on the edges of the petals. There are also glittery stripes in the DP but I think it shows up better on the piccie of the whole card!

I hope lots of you are going to join us this week. Bling is something we all like, it's easy to add and I'm sure you can combine the Totally Gorjuss challenge with other challenges. So I'm hoping to see what you come up with this week. It's been great to see all your lovely cards so far.
