Uptown girl!

I GOT TOP 3 AT WHIFF OF JOY WITH THIS CARD!


I'm doing a quick post as I am heading out today with hubby. The weather is supposed to be terrible so may not be out as long as expected lol.
I made this card for a friend to give to her daughter in law. She loves shopping, is a GAA widow lol and has a little dog she is very fond of. So I incorporated the shopping easy enough but decided to add the other things to the sign post lol. I won that gorgeous background stamp a few weeks ago and this is my first time getting to play with it. I love it!!
Image - Whiff of Joy stamp and The Pixie Cottage at the corner of stamp
Papers - I have had this paper for ages and it has no markings but its is gorgeous inc real life
Medium - coloured with promarkers and copics and pencils (took me ages)
Embellishments - pink ribbon and glitter
I would like to enter this into
Whiff of Joy - anything but square
My Mum's craft shop - inspired by song - Uptown Girl
Polka Doodles - ribbon and bows
