Alice's Birthday

Hello my Crafty Friends,
Thanks for stopping by today.
I have made a this card for my Niece Alice,
she is 12, again that awkward age,
So I went for a Gorjuss girl topper, this time I made it on a 6 x 6 white card base, I matted and layered cream lined paper from the gorjuss range onto black card added a lilac wide strip down the middle of the card then trimmed either side of that with some black/white spotted ribbon and a band of vertical stripe paper across the card, I mounted the topper onto some black card and placed it to one side of the card.
I took one of the embellishments from the Gorjuss range, covered it with Perfect medium and then added ultra thick embossing powder to give it a shine. I took one of the little tags from the range and added some rub on letters to personalise the card and topped the tag with a little bow of spotty ribbon.
I hope you like the card. It was a little smaller than I usually make but thought I would give myself a challenge.
I am going to pack my bag now as I am off to my friend Pat's house in Witney to do some crafting, with another friend Sue, to of the loveliest ladies, I so wish we could all get together and craft along together, but I feel there would be more talking than crafting. It would be lovely though as crafters seem to be such genuinely generous people.
Huge Crafty Hugs,
