Girls Love to Shop

Good Morning

Its the beginning of a new week and we have a brand new challenge at Besties UK, this can be found over at 'My Besties UK Challenge Blog' - this is a brand new challenge for this week.

'Theme - Girls Love to Shop'

You can enter this challenge and win some of Sherri's 'My Besties' digi images.  Here is what I created for my DT inspiration using IMG162 which you can buy in Sherri's Etsy store  HERE 

I was looking through my card stock for a nice cheery colour to start the new year and found a nice pile of the Core'dinations Shabby Shutters one of my favourites… not into green really but love the yellowish green shades….

It made a nice change to use some different colours and some different stamps and images, I coloured my image with copics  my favourite media and used the crushed olive distress ink to co-ordinate with the card.
