Shop Till You Drop

Looks like this little lady is celebrating by going shopping.  And she must have plenty of money to spend because she has lots of bags on her arm.  This image is a Lili of the Valley  image (Born To Shop).  I wanted to get this card finished in time to enter it into the Lili of the Valley challenge but life got in the way and I missed the cutoff for their challenge.   

I used my distress inks to color my image and added glitter to her dress and hairbow.  I put glaze on her sunglasses but I don't think it really shows in the picture.  I used a Martha Stewart butterfly punch and added some pearls.

I also added a pearl in the larger flower for some bling and tied on a sweet little sentiment from the  Papertrey Ink Mixed Messages stamp set.  I punched out my sentiment using a Martha Stewart punch.  I love the size of these little tags.

Thank you for stopping by!
