So Gorjuss

It's been ages since I did a kick-stand card, don't know why as I love making them.  I first saw them when browsing Splitcoast Stampers, they had a challenge featuring them and I was hooked. So I dug out one of my neglected Gorjuss Girls and had a play one night last week (then forgot that I had made it!) It was a just because card when I made it but after checking out some challenge blogs I think this fits in with Everybody Art challenge which is birthdays (close enough for me lol).

I actually cut in to my new Kaiser papers - had a few tremors and broke out in a sweat but bravely soldiered on!! I need a medal rofl. And I even broke in to my delish June chocolate & vanilla kit from Crafty Feeling - it is so "choc" full of yummy browns and creams - flowers, ribbons, lace and the most gorgeous embellies including the jewel buttons I used in the flower centres.  There was even a yummy bar of chocolate in that helped to console me with all the new stash I was using!!

Recipe:
Stamps: Gorjuss Girl, sentiment from Whiff of Joy Party Sentiments, StudioG scroll stamp
Papers: Kaiser Cafe Culture from The Hobby House
Embellies: All from the Crafty Feeling June kit - chocolate & vanilla

Thanks for stopping by,
