Little Miss Attitude

...and a Happy Tuesday to you all....
My Mum's first words, when she saw this card were...
"It reminds me so much of you when you were little, because this is exactly the stance you used to take, when you wanted something and I said no".
And I guess, I can't argue with that...after all, Mum knows best...and one day, remind me to show you the photo of me, in this exact same pose, arms folded, defiant look and showing some childhood attitude, after being told~ "Don't!!"
So, as for today's card ~ my love affair with Gorjuss continues and I made this one using the Sugar Nellie, Gorjuss rubber stamps from Funky Kits. When I saw the image, I just couldn't say no...it's so cute!!

I matted and layered some K&Company papers from the Sparkly Sweet range, onto a square white card blank and to be honest, the papers are so beautiful and the image is so striking that I really didn't want to overcomplicate the card. So, once I had stamped the Little Miss Attitude image onto some plain white cardstock, which I previously diecut using a Spellbinders label die, through the Cuttlebug. I then coloured it in using Promarker pens, highlighted the little hearts in her hair and on the dress with glitter and then just around the edge of the card, I used distress inks for a to give some softness to the diecut.

I then layered the completed image onto the matts of backing paper, using 3D foam and as finishing touches, I added some fabulous pink spotty satin ribbon, tied a little bow and adhered a cute heart shaped button. Finally, I stamped the "Just Because" greeting, punched some butterflies using a Martha Stewart stamp & punch and a grand adhesive glittery flower.

HAHA!!! You? Attitude? NO! surely you jest! The card should have been titled "Just Emma"! ;p

but in all seriousness, I love this Gorjuss image! Perfectly sassy but still so very cute...and this card really captures that attitude!

Just brilliant...well done, baby! <333
