'Gorjuss' Celebration card

Well 2 weeks have past and I survived my first challenge week with drunken stampers, hopefully I even managed to give you a few ideas. Time now for Team Tropical Hooters new challenge and the theme this week is.........

DS138 Challenge Graphic

Turns out, I've just taken delivery of an amazing set of bunting stamps and dies from Sizzix, just perfect for this theme. For the background matting and layering I've used 3 different contrasting papers and overlapped them. Instead of mounting theme I've edged each sheet with a couple of squiggly lines, it just gives it a little bit more 'je ne sais quoi'!

I totally love the bunting stamps and by putting them on a bit of twine and using 3D glue gel, really gives the card dimension.

The stamped image of the girl is from the Gorjuss range by Docrafts. Still going through my monochrome phase, so used grey Promarkers to colour, but I do think it really does work on this card as it brings out the colour of the balloon brads and the colour in the bunting.

Hope it gives you a few ideas for your card for the challenge.
