Gorjuss meets Magnolia!

Happy Friday!
I've loved the Gorjuss Girls designs by Suzanne Woolcott since I first saw them at Funky Kits.
I had a few Sugar Nellie stamps but having to order from Scotland always made them lower on my list simply because I'm an "instant gratification" kinda gal!
Then my local scrapbook store Personal Scrapbook started to carry them and so I had to run and get some! Today I'm using "Just a Girl" and I hope you like her. Also as Sugar Nellie don't make background stamps to go with the Girls I was super pleased to find that the Magnolia backgrounds work perfectly!

I had a few challenges I wanted to do to go with this card too:

City Crafter - Pink
Stamp With Sarah Kay - Pink
Totally Gorjuss - Pink and Green
Craft Your Passion - Pink and Green
Midnight Madness - Sketch (turned a 1/4 turn)
A Spoon Full of Sugar - 3 DP and 3 Buttons
Little C's - 2 or more layers
Shellys Images - Anything Goes
Crafty Angels - One for The Girls
Crafty Calendar - The Great Outdoors

Card Recipe:
Image - Just A Girl by Sugar Nellie from Funky Kits
Image - Summer Background by Magnolia
Paper - Making Memories and DCVW
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Die Cuts - Quickutz
Border Punch - Fiskars
Medium - Copic Markers and Airbrush System
Extra's - Smooch Paint and Flower Soft

I masked her to add the background and then painted the clouds with Smooch paint and added Flower Soft on top for a little fluff.
I hope to find time to do some more Gorjuss cards soon!
