I Love Promarkers DT Card - Anything But Square

We have a new challenge for you today at I Love Promarkers, this week our theme is "Anything But Square", and were sponsored by Opal Crafts, a wonderful online craft store who are offering a £10 voucher to our lucky, randomly chosen winner.
I had itchy fingers to play with a new Gorjuss stamp, called The Getaway, that I just had to treat myself to, so I did just that, making a circular card to fit in with this week's theme.  The stamped image was, of course, coloured with Promarkers.
I made the shaped card base from a 7x7 card blank, using a Grand Spellbinders die, and covered it with grey pearl card, then matted up with a sheet of grey script paper that lying loose in my stash, I'm not sure where it came from.  The sentiment was stamped with a Lili of the Valley stamp and matted up to match the card blank.
As I'd kept the rest of the card pretty neutral, I decided to add a pop of colour with the embellishments and pull out the colour of the girl's dress.  I did this by layering some ribbon, some in soft colours, some more ... errr ... perhaps the word is vibrant!  I also added some flowers made with Woodware punches, with Gorjuss buttons in the centres, and finished with some clear gems.
