Just gorjuss!!

What a great weekend...yesterday it was Procession day here in Bathgate...lots of decorated floats, bands, flower girls, rainbow girls etc. Holly's friend was the Flower Queen...she was beautiful!! It was so hot I got burnt and I don't normally burn, Holly was ok as she was covered up cos she's so fair!! Today was fun day and the heaven's opened and the rain couldn't have came down any heavier but it didn't spoil the fun....lots of events were under cover...but the highlight for Holly was to see Stacey Solomon singing...what a treat!! I have my second wind now and a wide awake so I thought I would make this card...might have to retake the photo in daylight. The backing papers are crate Papers and the Gorjuss girl has been paper pieced which I have to say I am enjoying doing..this is the third time and it is very therapeutic, I masked off her fae and sprayed the hair with copics...thought I would try shading her hair differently and then coloured her face, I added sequin flowers to the stamped image aswell to give additional sparkle, punched the message an the flowers and also added black an white ribbon and glitter.
