Let's Go Shopping!

Not only is December a big month for Christmas present shopping, it's also my daughter's birthday month.  I give her cash to get something special.  This year I used a wax envelope as the money holder.



The envelope just happened to be the perfect size for DCWV 4x6" cardstock which I slipped inside for a subtle background.  I added another strip of matching cardstock to the outside as a "sidewalk" for Sandy.  I used Copic markers, choosing colors to coordinate with the DCWV design.  (Her hair and eye color and  her outfit are supposed to look like me and what I wear.)  I added silver Wink of Stella for the jewelry. I highlighted the corners of her glasses and the Stampin' Up circle punch with Sakura black glaze pen for raised dots. You can't tell from this angle, but the shoppng bags and "Just for You" circle are adhered with pop dots for added dimension. Ribbon and gems are from my stash.

Shopping Sandy is a new release from Imagine That! digis by Kris.  Head over to the Creative Playground site for more design team inspiration and special pricing!
