Totally Gorjuss First DT Card.

Good morning girls. I am so nervous about my very first DT card for Totally Gorjuss. I'm so scared that everyone will think it is awful!! I've had a bit of a problem trying to get a photo of it. It has been very dull here and by the time I get home from work it is pointless to try! On Wednesday afternoon it was nice and bright but I was at a friend's house. Thursday was supposed to be nice but up until this time it has not happened. Then after a couple of unsuccessful piccies my clever clogs camera announced that it's battery was low. Immediate panic lol! Tried in the conservatory and then managed to get one outside before the camera died.

I need an 18th birthday card for my niece so I think this one will be perfect for her. Hope she likes it! I've use one of my favourite Gorjuss Girls available from Funky Kits. She has been coloured with Promarkers and her hair has been highlighted with an Inkssentials opaque white pen.

This is just a little close up of my flowers. I love these EK Success punches for making flowers. I punched out the larger size three times using the card I used for matting and once with the smaller size using the paler DP. Then just finished off with a little flat backed pearl.

As you can see I sewed round the edges with my mini sewing machine - I felt brave. I doodled round the image with an American Crafts precision pen.

Materials used:-

Sketch:- Passion for Promarkers.

DP:- Basic Grey 'bittersweet'.

Tools:- Nesties, mini sewing machine, Promarkers, EK Success punches and Inkssentials white opaque pen.

Plus flat backed pearls and jewel to finish.

I hope you like my first DT card and I also hope a lot of you very talented girls will want to join in our very first challenge over at Totally Gorjuss. You must check out the cards my lovely teamies have made - they are beautiful they are all very talented ladies. I'm really looking forward to checking out your lovely entries.
