The Pretend Friend

A card made with one of my old Gorjuss stamps today, this one is called The Pretend Friend, she's been coloured with my usual Promarkers, with paper piecing for the dress, and some Seedless Preserves Distress Ink round the edge of the topper for a slightly grungy look.
 The papers are Gorjuss, from Papermania, to which I've added black card for matting, the button in the middle of the bow is from the Gorjuss range too.  From the same black card as I used for the layering, I die cut a doily with an Xcut die, which I tucked behind the topper.
To embellish, I added some organza ribbon, some black crochet lace, that I stapled on with pink staples to add to the grungy look, a sentiment stamped with a Lili of the Valley stamp, a flower made with my Sue Wilson Cornflower die set with gold micro beads in the centre, leaves made with Marianne dies from black card then rubbed with gold gliding wax and finally, some blobs of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Black in the corners.
