Just Gorjuss :)

This week's challenge at Creative Inspirations is a sketch challenge provided by Nat. BTW thanks Nat for the awesome sketch. It was so easy to work with and so versatile. I'll definitely be using this one again and here it is:

If you have time, please give this sketch a try. If you enter it in Creative Inspirations Challenge you could win some awesome stamps.

As well, this card fits nicely with the current challenge over at Southern Girls which is to use 4 layers of patterned paper. They have some awesome prizes this week which are well worth taking part in the challenge.

The image I used is a Gorjuss Girl from Sugar Nellie. I always forget about these little images and they stay tucked away in a binder. Then I'll go blog hopping and see a project using one of these cuties and they see the light of day again. I wanted her to look like she was sitting on the ribbon and I think the way the ribbon wrinkled, it kinda looks like that.

Copics used:
Skin: E13, E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair: C9, C7, C5, C3
Clothing: R85, R83, R81, C9, C7, C5

Challenges I'm putting this card in:
Anything Goes - Ribbons
Tuesday Throwdown - Elements in 3's
CSSC - Girly Girl
Gingerloft - Glitter or Bling
Crazy 4 Challenges - Birthday
Sweet Stampin - Bling
Crafty Calendar - Birthday
Raise the Bar - Pink & Female Image
