Totally Gorjuss dt

This week on Totally gorjuss our challenge is "Pink".  For those of you that have played along with us since the begining, "Happy birthday to us", yes its our birthday this week, a whole year that we have been going and if you remember the first challenge on TG was Pink, so we are revisitng.
For my card this week i am using a LOTV image "mirror, mirror" and isnt she the sweetest little image?
I added a very large pearl flourish down the side of my card, and a few chery blossoms and roses, especially for the girly pinky feel of this card.  If you look closely i have also added a few teeny tiny pearls to her necklace.
Some of the local girls have been asking me to make templates for the flourishes i make down the side of my cards, you see all these flourishes that i use are not those store bought adhesive ones, i lay down dots of glue and then add the flat backed stones to them.  I have loads of colors and sizes so its not too difficult.  Must say that i am also enjoying decorating the insides of my cards and believe that the advice i was given that it finishes my cards off nicely was quite right.

Thats enough waffling from me, head over to the Totally gorjuss challenge blog and see what the rest of the team came up with to inspire you this week

  13. This is totally aweseome, Paola! I love all the pinks you added and the different pink patterns! Your pearl flourish is a work of art!!! I always use the pre-fab ones with adhesive on them - your's are so much more artful. Your little LOTV image is tooooo cute! Love the grey hat! The inside is just gorgeous! What beautiful paper you have used on this card, inside and out!
