OMG!!! Total Retail Therapy

Hi to all of you in the land of blog
I have had a lovely weekend 

went to a 60th Birthday Bash last night rolled in at 1pm an then woke with a slight head at 10am this morning the best way to reduce a head is to go to the Beach Hut and craft so enjoyed making this little number for Grimsby Crafts.  

I have used some of my new stash again, the Wild Rose dotty papers and some old Papermania papers.  I decided to aim for a challenge for a change, which has not been the case for some time, but when Lynn at Grimsby Crafts asked me to show case a Whiff Of Joy image, I chose this one and it then the theme for their challenge just shouted out to me.

So here is what I created
I have made an easel card, with a coffee pearlescent base colour and contrast.  I have used my MS punch to create extra detail to the diagonal cut and some gorgeous dotty ribbon new from the Hobby House, along with the flowers and pearls.  I have paper pieced the shopping bags and added pearls to the flower buttons.

Here is a close up of the inner return
I added platinum stickles to the flowers and Spun Sugar distress ink around the image plate and sentiments.

Here is a close up of the image
She is like me had a fabulous time shopping yesterday.

I am entering this into the following challenges
Whiff of Joy - Buttons and Blooms
Catch The Bug - Scallops (punched edge)
Little Claire's - Flowers
Our Daily Bread - Leather or Pearls (real or faux)
Wags N Whiskers - more than one fold
Digi Doodle - Pearls 
DYSU - Layers
