Reach for the stars...

Good morning,

The Challenge this time at 
Starry starry....Pink!

And the prize from our lovely sponsor
is a
£10 Gift Voucher

Today's DT card is made with the lovely Sugar Nellie Suzanne Woolcott Gorjuss girl, 'up, up and away'.

There's a few firsts here for me; this is the first Gorjuss I have coloured and the first shaker card I have made.  (Quite straightforward! I found a tutorial on good old Pinterest) and also (eeeeek) first fussy cutting!

I coloured this lovely image with Copics and used Core d'inations cardstock, embossed and distressed to make the background and the frame of the shaker card.  

Finally I added a heart shaped charm and some twine from The Ribbon Girl.

Here we are then, gorgeous Gorjuss proving there's a first time for everything!

Morning Sue, this is such a beautiful shaker card....I would never have known that is was your first, I've still not attempted to make one yet. I love your gorjuss fussy cut image too, she looks amazing as do the pretty papers and all your finishing touches.....Love it!!! Huge Hugz, Lorraine xx

Hi Sue...... well your three 'firsts' went soooooooo very well! I'm loving this Gorjuss Girlie.. and wow to the wonderful shaker star!!! Not to mention your fussy cutting..... I'm a bit of an addict as you know! And all the above go so well together on your fabulous card... I like that you used the clouds embossing folder in the background - just right for the design!

I hope you gather from all this that I LOVE this card!

Big hugs

Beautiful card Sue, your Gorjuss girl looks great floating in front of the shaker. I'm so impressed you did a star shape for your first shaker.

All the new techniques you tried out on this card have combined into a truly beautiful design and I really love the shaker element - so clever to use a star shape for it :-)
I struggle to make cards without all my layers of DP and I just realised there's almost no DP on here, just the gorgeous embossing, which adds such a lovely texture.

Big hugs, Kat xx
