Gorjuss Birthday

I needed to make a couple of birthday cards at the weekend, and in a change from the frosty colours I've been overdosing on lately, I decided to make a card for the Charisma Cardz 'Summer' challenge. I followed the sketch over at Totally Gorjuss, and am also entering this card for Cute Card Thursday's 'Swirly Girly' challenge. I've used 'Poppy Fields', watercoloured to match this gorgeous flowery BasicGrey paper (from the 'Lemonade' pad). I embossed the pink paper using the Cuttlebug 'Victoria' folder, then sanded it to reveal the detail, and used my distressing tool to rough up the edges. The sentiment stamp is by Hero Arts (from the 'Fabulous Birthday' set), the flowers and ribbon are from Poppicrafts, and the pearl brad is by Papermania.
