Shopping Stella Card/Gift Box

Good morning! My Mom asked me to make a card for a friend of hers who is embarking on a new adventure; she is opening a shop on Main Street. I was pretty much able to make whatever I wanted; however, my Mom wanted the card to be purple since that's her friend's favorite color. I DO like purple, but I was a bit worried because I knew I didn't have much in my stash.... I was able to find some pretty Basic Grey and when paired with purple CS, it worked perfectly. I love it when it all comes together so easily!

Stella is colored with pencils and her wand and crown are accented with a touch of yellow glitter. I made sure to give her bold, red lips since that is another favorite color of the recipient! I went with one of my "go-to" layouts and embellished with ribbons, a die cut flower and some bling.

Here's a close-up of the card only. I think Stella rocks! I love her crown and wand...they give me the opportunity to break out the glitter!

Image: Stamping Bella "Stella's Goin' Shoppin"
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Dark Chocolate, Basic Grey DP
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Embellies: PTI Plum Pudding and Dark Chocolate Ribbons, Recollections Bling, Doodlebug Glitter
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, The Cat's Pajamas CutUp "Button Flower" Die, PTI Label Die (box), The Paper Studio Sicky Doos

That's it for now, although I do hope to work is some stamping later today. It's been a busy week, so there is a lot to catch up on at home. Also, my daughter would like to do a bit of geocaching if the weather holds out. Thanks for stopping by; have a great Sunday!
