Gorjuss and a win

Wow what a great day, it was my last day at the sports collage, and the prestentation.... firstly there was a certificate for everyone who took part, then either bronze, silver or gold for a triathlon we took part in. I won gold! :O)
But then, our teacher presented two trophy, for the girl and boy accademy winner of the Year.... i was accademy girl! My mouth is aching from all the smiling! It now has pride and place on my mantle peice!

Paper and cardstock- PM and Dovecraft
Image- Gorjuss Girls from Sugar Nellie, coloured with pro-markers, whispers and sakura's.
Embellies: Purple Raffia Lace, Doodle Bug Ribbon, Spacers, Prima and Petaloo flowers, pearls.

Anyway... onto my card. I've made this to fit into this weeks Stamp With Fun Challenge, which is pearls. This card was actually for an order, for a little girl who liked pink and purple, and can yopu believe it's my first Gorjuss Girl? xx { no me niether lol}
She's fab to colour, i decided to use a mix of pro-markers and whispers. I then glitered and highlighted with my sakura's.
I used that gorgeous Raffia Lace from Nikki at Bunny Zoes Crafts... i think the Purples got to be my favourite! :O)
I really wanted to go to the Crafts U Love demo this weekend, but my dad said it was too far away, { i felt a tantrum coming on. } Instead, i told him about the free P+P on their website.... and with a little bit of persuasion and i managed a £20 order! :O)
I also won a little something on Jacqui's Blog when i participated in the WOJ Blog-hop, i can't wait to ink my cute elephant!

Thanks for looking,

Fern xx
