Shop Til You Drop

** 7/9/14 Winner at Word Art Wednesday! **

Good morning, everyone! It's very rare that I don't have my posts done in advance but this long weekend got away from me! I got the challenge blog post done but sure forgot to do mine! I'm super stoked to share my Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #33 - Anything Goes! We're being sponsored this time by the wonderful Eureka Stamps and A Day For Daisies! Come play with us! We know you love you some Anything Goes! ;)

I had birthday in mind when I started creating, but this card could really be used for any occasion that deserves a celebration and a chance for a girl to shop! I embellished the front with a Graphics 45 die cut, a yellow skeleton leaf and a flower that matches the letters used on the steps inside.

I absolutely love this design! I bought Silhouette cut files for 4-step, 5-step and 6-step cards a couple weekends ago and had a ball cutting them all out in gorgeous new double-sided papers! And what a snap they are to put together! So much fun!

I chose the gorgeous Fashion Bags digi as the focal image which I colored to match the floral paper. I used some letters from my stash and embellished the "o" with a tiny penny charm! So cute!

I mounted the Fashion Bags image on a black "Almost Leather" die cut matted on gold mirror cardstock. And then I gave her a pretty little gold purse!

I created a flag above and below the diagonal stamped sentiment, and embellished them with some red gumdrops.

I added boot and purse die cuts (thanks to my big sis for these) which I lightly embellished with some clear Wink of Stella for just a little zing!

  • Kaiser Crafts The Looking Glass double-sided paper
