Stampin for the Weekend Week 5 - Double or Nothing

Good morning everybody. Today is week 5 of our challenge blog being launched. The past month has flown by and with all this hot and humid weather, my Mojo has up and left me ! If anyone finds him, please send him home to me!

This week at Stampin' for the Weekend, we have a Double or Nothing theme for you!
Two Sketches!
It would only be right to offer two prizes too! So I'l show you the sketches quickly and the prizes, then my card!

If you decide to do my sketch, you could be in with a chance to win one of the lovely stamps from Pink Gem Designs! Janet has kindly donated this lovely fairy stamp, she is so sweet!
All fo these stamps are so cute and if you head on over to the site, there are new stamps being released for July!

My Sketch!

If you decide you prefer Donnas sketch, you could be in with a chance to win some fabby Digi Stamps from the Cute Daisy May collection!

Donna's Sketch

So, with the formalities over, here is my card. Obviously I went with my own sketch.

I inked up one of my favorite Gorjuss Girls from Sugar Nellie at Funky Kits and coloured her with Copics. I cut out some circles and scalloped circles with my nesties from my Gemstone papers (which I think are papermania, but not entirely sure), and mounted this little lady onto them!
I alternated between the Gem stone papers and Core'dinations textured card stock to build up the sketch. I kept it all bright and hippy like, to keep in the theme of this little lady. Which I think, had she been around at the end of the 60's would have fitted in well at Woodstock! I used my Doily Punch for a little detail on the right hand side.

I then used one of my birthday sentiment stamps, but I dont think it stamps well onto the textured card very well, and it kind of bled a little!

I used some paper flowers that were in my stash, I think they are K&co, but not sure. I went over them with some Copics as the colours didnt match completely and I'm still not sure if they do! and attatched them to the card with gem centred brads.

That's about it for my card. I kept it simple, and dont think its too busy. The card has already been claimed. So it had a nice new home now!

Thanks for popping by, and DONT forget to go see the Stampin' Teams creations over at Stampin' for the Weekend where you will find all the links to see how they made thier card.
Also, again this week we have the lovely Nancy who is our Guest Designer! Her card is fabulous, so go check it out!

Thanks again!

Fabulous card Kimmi, love the hippy Gorjuss girl and all the layering you've done on the nesties, really very colorful, and the flowers look neat, and of course your doily laced border on the side is so pretty, I do love that punch.

Hiya Kimmi, what a fab card you have created with your sketch, the shimmery textured cardstock looks rather luxurious too, especially with the MS doily lace punched border. Love this lil Gorjuss Girl and you've coloured her in fabby, lovely bright, hip 'n' cheery colours. luv 'n' hugs xx vicki xx
