If the recipe works...

Isn't that what people say...? :-)
You have probably seen a few cards of mine with this same image, Born to Shop by Docrafts, but the feedback has always been so positive that I think the cool funky lady must really work for this sort of card - another commissioned 40th Birthday card. LOL!

(I apologise for the bad quality of the photo; the weather has been so miserable today that it had to be taken with artificial light; the colours are much more vibrant and bright IRL)
As usual I coloured the image with Letraset Promarkers and highlighted some bits with Diamond Stickles. I matted it with red cardstock; the backing papers are leftovers from other projects, can't remember where they came from, edges all distressed with red ink; the dots stamp is Inkadinkado; the border punch is Fiskars; the red paper flowers from my own stash; the sentiment created in Word.

My card enters the following challenges:
Basic Grey - a sketch by Heather
PaperTake - sparkly and bright
Creative Inspirations - Glitter, Glamour, Girlie
Inky Impressions - Flowers
Simon Says - Punch them
ABC- G is for Glitter
Aly's Sunday -  Distressed
Sentimental Sundays - Birthdays
Clean and Simple - Happy Birthday
Inktegrity - Anything goes
Craft Your passion - Anything goes

Thanks for your comments!
