Almost a Big Number

Click here for the October Card Chain Challenge sign up

Hello.  Welcome.  I got all excited cos my blogger post counter skipped over to a big number but then I realised that that included my draft posts.  But soon, soon.....   Shall we have a giveaway?  Oh yes we shall.  Stay tuned Nomad friends.  I foresee some busy days ahead.  Here's a card using a very sweet Gorjuss girl.  

I used Poppystamps Hello Background die to emboss the background. Then I smooshed with Salty Ocean distress ink and splooshed with water.  I cut the panel with Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle die and mounted in a blue card base.  The hello was cut using the Poppystamp Hello die from hot pink card and mounted on a strip of dark blue.  I added some lace edging and Gorjuss White Rabbit (??) stamped, embossed, fussy cut and coloured with distress inks.  My layout is based on this sketch from Scrappelyst

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
