Born To Shop

Good morning everyone, what a fabulous week of sunshine we have had... I wonder how long it will last lol!! Hope you have all had a good week.  As it's Tuesday it's time for another challenge over at 'Papertake Weekly',  Dawny has a lovely sketch for you this week or you can choose any of the other sketches on the blog, but remember it must be one of our sketches you can find them here.  I chose to go with the new one. I have used a lovely stamp called 'Born to Shop' I got it free with a magazine some time ago, and this card is for someone who loves to shop... (don't we all lol!!)

This is my take on the sketch, I swapped some of the elements around a little, remember it can be exact or you can move elements around to fit in with what you would like

I coloured the image with my inktense pencils and cut around the image. I used one of Tim Holtz embossing folders then cut a circle out of the middle and adhered the image to the centre with mounting squares. did some faux stitching around the circle and embossed paper, added a stamped sentiment from LOTV and some lovely ribbon from LOTV and some gems. I also die cut some flowers and added a little gem to each one.  I really enjoyed using the circle die, you can get some fabulous effects if you play around with them, quiet like the way this card turned out...
