Little Red

This card is made using more of my Gorjuss crafty stash. I made it for the for the following challenges:

I used the stamp Little Red from the Docrafts Gorjuss range the jewels are from Kanban, the ribbon is some of those that come from the Docrafts Goody bag. I cut the rounded corner mats and layers using my Brother Scan 'N' Cut and the border and decorative circle have also been cut using the Brother.

I had a few pieces of the card left over and I had coloured a spare little girl so I made a matching little card to go with it.

If anyone is thinking about getting the Brother I would definitely recommend it. I've had it for a couple of months now and it has never been back in the box.

I made these boxes using the DCWV Shimmer Stack, the stamps, embellishments, buttons, decoupage, papers and tags are all from the Docrafts Gorjuss collection that I have just purchased.
