Shabby Gorjuss

My local Hobby Craft store has most of the current loop Docrafts products half price, some even less, so I popped in and bagged myself a few tasty bargains, including this Gorjuss stamp and pink silk ribbon from the Belissima range.
 The papers used on this card are all from Papermania's Belissima range, including the flowers, which have been made with Xcut dies and punches.  I also used the papers to paper piece the girl's dress after colouring the rest of her with Promarkers.
The Gorjuss stamp also comes with a large frame stamp, which I've used here, stamped in Dusty Concord Distress Ink for a shabby look.  The inner part of the stamp is an oval shape, which I've filled with a die cut Spellbinders shape, cut from lilac card, roughly painted with gesso, then Frantaged with Shabby Pink powder.
A Belissima sentiment tag, a silk ribbon double bow and some lilac pearls finish my card.
