Shop till you... Drop!!!

Hello everyone?! Had a lovely weekend? Or having.. for those who are some hours behind me?! Mine was fabulous, got some time to play, and some more to rest and pray, so it couldn't get any better! :) Today I want to share with you this queen of beauty.. what you think of her?

She's having some fab time.. shopping and shopping.. till.. she drops something! A girly card, isn't it? I decided to use lavender, purple and green as main colours. Purple is my favourite colour, but funnily enough I don't use it often in my creations. Anyone knows why?? :)

I used some papers that were gently sent to me some months ago, this cutie Anya stamp, and Friday Sketchers' sketch. I added lots of bling, and emellishments on this one. I added some stitching on the panels for some more movement.. and I did move! Can't get straight stitching! Something else I need help for! :)

On the inside I kept the same scale in colour. I added that cute sentiment from a craft cD, some more embellies.. and a shoe that Anya must have dropped from her stuffed bags! :)

Click on the pictures for better viewing.

I'm off to sleep now.. I'm tired, and I don't want to start the week on a tired note! :)) Big hugs to you my friend. Thank you for the time you spent here. I hope you'll find some inspitration of any kind. Know that peace and prayers have already been offered freely to you from me! x
