Gorjuss pyramage

When we got back from Maidstone yesterday I needed to get some birthday cards into the post ... and then remembered that my entire stock of cards was over at mum's ready for selling at her summer fair today, which, incidentally, went quite well.

So I had no alternative but to make three cards before going over to catch the final post collection of the day.

So this is a card for our sponsored child. I used the paper and pyramage from a Gorjuss set that I bought in Maidstone, mounting on a sparkly pink card and adding the DCWV pink stitched ribbon and a few Craftwork cards candis.

I admit that the card was made in a bit of a hurry in order to get it into the post - fortunately, when I was putting it in the envelope, I realised that the paper at the bottom lefthand corner had turned up a bit, so I was able to stick it down (didn't realise this when I took the photo).

This is for:

Claudia & company 82: birthday card for a girl
Whoopsi Daisy: birthday
Paper pretties 155: birthday card
Scrappy frogs: happy B-day
Little red wagon 82: use a number
Divas by design 2: one for the girls
Ribbon girl 8: pinks and lilacs
My mum's craft shop 7: favourite colours - I love using pinks and purples
Totally papercrafts 68: pink and girlie
Shopping our stash 1: ribbon rewind (I've had this ribbon for ages)
Kaboodle 68: distress, rip, tear, crumple ... (the paper is torn)
Paper romance 52: distressing
Theme Thursday: texture and/or layers (pyramage layers)
Inspire me Fridays 8: anything goes
Woodware USA 28: anything goes
Creative card crew: anything goes
The paper shelter 15: anything goes
Truly scrumptious 57: anything goes
2 sisters 41: anything goes
