Sketch Saturday No. 58

Hi peeps! (I say that but nobody visits my blog - sob!).

I've just recently bought some lovely Elzybells stamps & they are sooo much fun to use and I find myself with loads of inspiration with their stamps - I've included a link and I would recommend that you have your credit card ready if you decide to follow it.

Anyway, as usual I trawl the challenge blogs looking for something to have a go at, and the Sketch Saturday one screamed at me today, so I thought I'd have a go.

The backing paper for the card was made using the stamps from Elzybells new Retail Therapy set, and I have to say I had my best friend Laura in mind when I made this! Instead of the three flowers in the original sketch, I thought it would be more appropriate to have shopping items and so used shoes, a handbag and a top. I even (a first for me!) decorated the inside of the card with the same main image and a row of little credit cards down the side. I have to say I'm really pleased with how this turned out.
