Christmas Stampin' All Year Long



Happy Monday Everyone!! It's a Gorjuss Christmas!!
I hope you had a good weekend. Today's challenge over at Maria's Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog is Debbie's Sketch challenge. She gave us a sketch and also added embossed card stock to the top of the card. I would post a picture of the sketch but Blogger doesn't seem to want to post pictures at the moment. I can't get my pictures to upload into this post. UGHHHHH!!!

I made my card using Bazzill embossed cardstock for the red piece and the card base. I used DCWV patterned paper for the bottom. I used this adorable Sugar Nellie Gorjuss Girl and colored her with my copics. You can buy your Sugar Nellies and your Gorjuss Girls at Funky Kits. I cut her out with my nesties and popped her up on pop dots. I also gave her a little present to sit next to her!! I put a cute little pearl at her neck and a cute heart in her hair. She's ready for Santa to come!! I stamped my sentiment using a Sugar Nellie stamp and put stickles and pretty hearts on it as well. I used a white gel pen to put some dots on the scallops and stickles around my Gorjuss Girl too. I used some pretty glittered brads on either side and that's it. I'm not completely satisfied with it, but it turned out pretty cute, I think. I'm not sure if it's the card that's bothering me or the pictures.






(here's the out of focus shot to show my embossed cs.)

I hope you like my card. Be sure to visit the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog to see what the other challenge divas have created. I also have them listed on my sidebar. It's time to get started on those cards!! We'd love for you to play along, just leave a comment and a link to your creation on the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog or if you upload to SCS or PCP, use the keyword CSAYL. Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Be sure to come by tomorrow to see what I have to show you.
