Its a very sad day for me today as my 85 year old Grandmother passed away in her sleep in the early hours of this morning.  She was the person who inspired me to start card making and one of the first posts on my blog was a birthday card for her last year.  So I chose this lovely new image from the Gorjuss Girls 3 collection as it shows a star and that is how I will think of my nan - a bright shining star!

I coloured the image in copics and used gold glitter glue on the stars and purple glitter glue for the dots on the dress.  I then cut her out with my nesties labels 4 and mounted with sticky pads.  The patterned papers are both from Pocket full of Poses paper stack, the silver mirror card and the plain purple card are both from my stash. The flower is Prima Daisy Dreams which I also added some purple glitter glue.  The gems are Papermania and the sentiment is Anita's.
