Totally Gorjuss challenge 6


Here's my DT card for the 6th challenge at Totally Gorjuss - this week we'd like to see Christmas creations, and this week you can use any cute & girly stamps you want, either on their own or with a Gorjuss Girl - you'll get 2 entries if you use a GG stamp. Hope you can join in with us this week :o)

I've made this card for my cousin who's 17, but I must admit now I've made it, I'm not sure if it might be a bit 'young' for her - what do you think? I've used the lovely sitting gorjuss girl, coloured with promarkers. The papers are Sandylion - I bought them in my local craft shop Craft Haven the other day, and was gutted to be told that they're closing next month because business has been so slow recently - noooo, where will I buy beautiful papers now?! It's such a shame, it's a lovely shop. Anyway, back to the card.... green cardstock is DCWV, not sure what make the gold is - it's not actually glitter card but it's got a lovely subtle sparkle to it, don't think the pics really pick it up. The snowflake is cut with the cuttlebug icicle die, with a button centre, then I punched some little snowflakes and added gem centres. The ribbon is one I've had for a very long time and never managed to use, it just never seemed to go well with anything before, but hopefully it looks ok here.


I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
