Mothers Day Gorjuss Girl.

Got myself organised and made a Mothers Day card for my Mum. Used this Gorguss Girl (Poppy Fields) and coloured her with Copics. Layered her onto Nestability ovals and then onto a card covered with backing paper (Daisy Plaid by Make and Create) and layered green ribbon and little white material flowers.
For the embellishments I punched the flowers  from white card and leaves from green card to match the flowers on the backing paper. I Scored each petal a little at the point and  pinched them up to add some dimension (a tecnique I saw in the Magnolia magazine - coz I never would've thought of it myself)  I added the green ribbon and bow, the sentiment (printed on PC) and glitter to the flower centres.

Below is a close up of the punched flowers

Well hope to be back soon with another post, Thanks for Looking
