Gorjuss Decoupage

It was craft night with the girls last night and after tea and home made orange layer cake we all made cards featuring Gorjuss girls.  I was on a roll and managed to get two done.
I bought the 6x6 and the 8x8 paper packs as soon as they were released, this card was made with the 8x8 pack which is in neutral browns and beiges, I added in some kraft cardstock too.  My Mum bought the Ultimate Gorjuss pack which is bursting with decoupage, toppers, tags, borders, gift bags, not to mention papers, and she kindly gave me some decoupage to play with.  The image is huge so I kept the rest of the card quite simple, just adding a border made with a Martha Stewart punch, a ribbon, a brad topped bow, cream and brown pearls, clear gems and hearts fussy cut from a sheet of paper.

I'm entering this card in the following challenge -
Ooh La La - four legged friends
Card Mania - #16 - lots of layers
So Artful - shades of brown and cream
Jellypark - Bunnies
This one was made with the 6x6 paper pack which is in rich, deep colours and more of Mum's decoupage (thanks Mum!), she also let me have the tag element from the Ultimate pack too.  I used a Papermania stepper card inked with Distress Ink in Antique Linen and Walnut stain, made a lacy border with the same punch as before and finished with a dark blue ribbon, a bow, some weeny punched flowers and some blue pearls.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Created With Love - #32 - different fold
Kaboodle Doodles - #162 - 3D, I used decoupage
Totally Papercraft - #157 - punch it
Southern Girls - #64 - tags
