Gorjuss 'Up in the Clouds'

I absolutely love the Gorjuss range of products recently bought out by DoCrafts. I treated myself to quite a few of them as soon as they came out and have finally had chance to make another card using them.

This was a really simple card to make although any time I rubber stamp onto a patterned paper I do get heart failure but these stamps are so detailed and beautiful I shouldn't have worried. I chose 2 papers from the 6x6 Gorjuss paper pack both with tones of blue. The distress style paper reminded me of the clouds in a grey sky (not that we've seen many of those recently! ;-D) so I chose to stamp the image of the Girjuss girl sitting with the birds directly onto it. I cut the paper down to 12cm square and then stamped directly with a black Versafine ink pad. I then stamped the sentiment using the same ink. I used my new scallop corner punch to add detail to the edges and then mounted it onto a small silver mirror card mat. I cut the stripe paper as a slightly larger mat, again punching the corners and then attached it all to a 6x6 card base that I also punched the corners of.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
