Retail Therapy

Hello and I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  We did - it was very snowy and foggy over at my Daughter's house but all clear once we got back home just very cold.  I'd like to extend a big welcome to my latest follower Erin, so pleased to see you!

I have a card made from one of the new images that are available this month at Beccy's Place and this set is called Retail Therapy.

I went for a centre step card for a change.  The papers are digital but are scraps so I don't know the name but I am quite pleased with myself for using scraps!!  I coloured the image with my Copics and used Dienamics Pierced Rectangle Stax to cut her out.  The button and fishtail were made using Dienamics dies and I triple embossed the button with clear embossing powder. Twine and sequins are from Doodlebug.

This is what you get in the set:

Challenges I would like to enter:

Glitter 'n Sparkle - Cute
ABC - Button and Bow
Sister Act - Anything Goes

Thank you so much for looking today, see you soon.
