Gorjuss in Warm Tones

I hadn't made a Gorjuss card for a while, so I dug out this sweet stamp and coloured her up with my Promarkers, adding a tiny touch of Spectrum Noir pencils for depth.  I used an embossing folder with the design round the edge only, on the piece of card I'd stamped her on, and I inked the topper with Distress Ink in Old Paper and Rusty Hinge to highlight the pattern.

 The backing paper and papers used to make the flowers are from a Lili of the Valley pad called Country Lady, I teamed them with some ginger card for matting and a lovely red doily.
To embellish, I added some brown organza ribbon, some green lace, a button, some red pearls, flourishes cut with a Spellbinders die, a large flower made with a Spellbinders die and a button, and smaller flowers made with Nellie Snellen Punches.
