Puddles of Love

Before I get on to my card for today I just wanted to let you know that there are only 4 places left for the Girls Just Want to Have Fun crafty day on the 28th May, so if you're still making up your mind please don't hang around, contact Kath to secure your place asap.

Back again with another of the new Gorjuss Girls - this one, I think is my favourite from this release so of course it had to have the purple treatment. I seem to have a bit of thing at the moment for White on white with splashes of colour - dunno if that's a good thing or not.
Kath - if you're reading this, please take a deep breath and brace yourself... there are naked buttons in this post!!

your coloring is amazing! beautiful card!

Aussie Loz said...

love the embossing, and she's gorjuss! love the rain effect around her ♥

Paula said...

Love this - the colour purple just has to be my favourite & that is brilliant with the blues & the whites. The dotty background on the image panel picks up the spots on the umbrella & the embossing folder beatifully as well as the spotty buttons (don't know what Kath is on about buttons in the buff (Haha) - some have got spotty clothing. The little crystal gems on her umbrella & clothing really give the sense of raindrops. especially with the rainbow handle & motif on her boots.
Seem to have managed another essay - just saw so much in this.
