Simply gorjuss

I don't usually buy card making kits but I managed to pick up a couple of gorjuss decoupage kits really cheaply a few months ago and thought I would be able to put them together pretty quickly. Well the 'quick' thing didn't work out as its taken me two days to finish one card off.

So the decoupage is from the card kit. I have added candi to the corners and mounted the decoupage on black card and then paper that came with the kit.

The paper glued directly onto the card is actually a wallpaper sample. It never made it onto our walls but I really liked the texture and knew it would work well on a card one day. The card stock is grey. I added cord and the flower which I cut out on the Cameo.

Here is the finished card:

Close up of the flower:

Hope you have all had a good weekend. I am just going to attempt to make Lasagne now for Sunday dinner - wish me luck!!
