I found my family in a book

As promised I'm back with a second post today. Please scroll down for today's SWALK sneak peek. When I went to Ally Pally recently I almost a couple of the Gorjuss girl stamps but bought so much other stuff that I didn't buy any. However Lynsey knew how much I liked them and bought me one for my Birthday. She is called I found my family in a book and I adore her. In fact she matches the bag I had as one of my Birthday pressies from my hubby. I saw these bags a while back and we found them in a shop in the New Forest when we went away recently.

So, onto my card which has been coloured with Promarkers. The edges have been coloured with Broken China DI, papers are Pink Paislee Bayberry Cottage which I bought from Crafty Emma's. I used some lovely seam binding I bought at Ally Pally, Prima flowers and brads. I used the great sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and would like to enter this into the challenge of seeing red at CES and anything goes at By the cute and girly.
