One of the girls I work with has a birthday in a few weeks, and she is a shopaholic, so I think that the image on this card is perfect for her, because most lunchtimes she comes back from town with a armful of bags!  I'm not sure of the designer of the image, as it is one that I have saved to my PC a while ago.

I have gone with a plain and simple design for this card, as the backing paper is gorgeous.  The photo really doesn't do the backing paper justice.  The paper came from a DCWV stack that I bought in the States last year called 'The Luxury Stack', and all the designs are.

I have teamed the backing paper with some plum coloured card to match the paper I have used, and some wide plum ribbon.  I love ribbons and bows and am always so disappointed with my bows but have been a follower of this blog for a while, her cards are amazing, and I have finally mastered tying bows thanks to using Bev's tutorial, and am really happy with the result.

With the bow tied I have added a glue dot to the back of it, and attached it to the ribbon.  The image was coloured with promarkers, and a few pearls and sentiment finish the card off.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
