Bellarific Shoppabella

Here's my card for this week's Bellarific Friday sketch challenge. I chose to use Savvyshoppabella because this was me this past week...shopping in NYC! Although I didn't look quite this cute...LOL! The sketch this week is a fabulous Nickabella layout...love it! 

She's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copics. I added some sparkle to two of her shopping bags with my orange and blue Spica glitter pens. Then I cut her out with Petite Oval Nestabilities and layered her onto an oval of really rust. 

The patterned papers are from Little Yellow Bicycle's Traveller Collection. The other solid colours I used were old olive and night of navy. I ran the night of navy panel through my hounds tooth cuttlebug folder for a little texture. The retail therapy sentiment was cut out with the smallest of the Spellbinders double ended tags. I added some blue jean Bella Glitter Dots to the sentiment and two more in the top right corner, then I finished the card with a luscious loopy bow using ribbon from my stash. 

I had so much fun in NYC, but best of all I was able to get together with my friends Ann and Jodi, whom I met at Stamp New England in March. I ventured out to Long Beach and spent the day with Ann, shopping, lunch, laughing, getting caught in a downpour...you know, all the fun stuff. Then Jodi joined us for a wonderful dinner and we laughed SO much we all had tears streaming down our faces at one point. In fact, I had so much fun that I completely forgot to take a picture of us together...hmph...guess I'll have to go back again soon!  :)

I can't wait to see what everyone else came up with for this sketch...off to Bloggabella to have a look!

Thanks for stopping by!
