Simply Gorjuss Ruby

Good Morning to you!!  The weekend is almost here and that means more crafting time!!!
Or sadly house organizing for me.  2 of my adult kids have moved out recently so I have 2 rooms to finish cleaning and painting.  I know a younger brother who would love one of those bigger rooms.  So that is what I will be doing.  It will feel good in the end.

My card for 7 Kids College Fund Store is Ruby from Simply Gorjuss
I colored her in Copics similar to her original photo on the carton.

I used the Spellbinders label 8 to frame her and used a dimensional glue dot to pop up the kitties

The embellishing is from the paper pack. I made the flowers with Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die and my brads.  You can see the 3 ribbons that I ran vertically on the right side, they are from this same set from Simply Gorjuss.

The inside are coordinating papers from the Simply Gorjuss paper pad and they already had Ruby on it. I used the Spellbinders Label 8 and 28 for framing and the tag. The white bag is from Canvas Corp.  I used Lala Land dies for the tabs.

Here are the Copics I used on this card.

I hope you liked my card and visit our Store if you would like to purchase any of the items listed below.

  1. Wow Kelly, this is gorgeous. I love those bold colours and all the shapes and dies you've used. I also like how it is as beautifully finished inside as out.

  2. That inside paper is so stinking adorable. I love her suspended on the swing. The overall design and shape of your card is no doubt, the bomb! Beautiful work bringing her and all the elements together so wonderfully.
    Good luck on the rearranging of household members into bigger rooms...oh what fan that would be!! :)

  8. Hi Kelly, your gorjuss girl is just that - gorgeous! Your colouring is just amazing and I love how you finished off the inside of the card too. Good luck with the redecorating! Hugs, Anne x

  9. Hey Sugar - another wonderful card but that is why they pay you the big bucks - right! I love your flowers - I have always preferred the home made flowers over the store bought. I think they add more personality and you can make them suit your make to your taste. Love those flowers. You know me - I love Kitty Kats - cute image. The inside of your card is well designed - really nice. Keep them coming kid!
