Gorjuss Grandaughter card

My MIL has asked me to make a card for her for my Niece's birthday. I decided it was the perfect time to have a real play with my new Gorjuss Girl stamps (I'm sorry but I'm just not counting the Father's Day has no flowers!). I got the inspiration for this whilst doing the ironing would you believe. Must iron more often...well no maybe not. I was ironing one of my little girl's dresses which has a heart on it but the edges aren't stitched down and thought it would look good on a card. I've used so much of my stash on this card I am reluctant to give it away. I'm afraid I just had to cover the skull and crossbones in her hair with a flower....didn't think the skull quite went with the flowers theme! Hope you like it.

A close up of the front. I have used my favourite New Year swirl stamp from Magnolia on the heart, overlapping it onto the card and sentiment.

I decorated the inside to match and there is a money pocket behind the Gorjuss girl.
