Good morning!

Did you know that Sugar Nellie is having a Gorjuss Girl party in honor of the new GG release? And part of the festivities includes a special Gorjuss Girl challenge which I am playing along with today. I chose to ink up Sowing the Seeds GG since she hadn't made it onto a card yet. Originally she is holding a bucket in one hand but I trimmed it off when I fussy cut her out so now it looks like she is just dancing through the flowers. Speaking of those flowers, these Vintage Blue scraps are from my most favorite collection that WeR ever came out with. The piece of floral print in the background wasn't big enough to fill the card front so I grabbed the largest rounded stitched square die from MFT and cut it twice, layered the two pieces and covered the seam with that strip of blue. Now it looks like a large rectangle with a perfect 1/8" border around the card. I also custom colored those clear gems with a V06 Copic to get just the right shade of purple to match the paper. Can you tell I was feeling pretty 'problem solver creative' yesterday? LOL  ;)

Well thanks for saying 'hi' and I shall catch you all on the flip side.  :)

I can't put my finger on why I like these stamps so much. I'm not a Magnolia Fan but definitely love the Gorjuss ones. As always, you really made her come to life with your awesome talent! TFS!! Hope you win!
