Gorjuss Girl - Just a Note

Hi there!
This weekend is flying by!  Yesterday I was a little overwhelmed with the mess in my craft room so I decided to have a good ol' clear out and sorting and my room and desk are now back in ship shape condition, lol!! It makes life so much easier when trying to find stuff, plus I'm not tripping over layers of stuff lying on the floor at my feet!
Anyways, I managed to get this card done and I used the Friday Sketchers sketch and the Cute Card Thursday challenge ' Bling It On'.  Whilst I enjoyed the sketch I did find creating the octagon a little challenging so forgive me if it doesn't look equal on all sides!!  I used this sweet Gorjuss girl and I thought the sentiment 'Just a Note' was perfect for it, with her holding a letter and all!  This is the first time I've bought and used a blingy swirl and I love it - can see more of those purchases being made!!  It's hard to tell on the photo but the white panel is embossed. The sentiment is from The Stamp Barn.  Here's a pic of the inside which I finished - very simple and plain.
Well, thanks for stopping by today and leaving a comment.  Don't forget there's only a few hours left on my BLOG CANDY so sign up if you haven't already done so!  I've been so overwhelmed with the response and the fact that my followers are over 100 and I'm on the verge of 10,000 hits that I will be adding a couple of extra surprise pieces in!
Wishing you all a wonderful Sunday afternoon and evening!  I'm off to blog hop and catch up on some commenting!

Another lovely creation Danielle. Your stitching around the octagon really adds a lovely touch to an already gorgeous card.
