Saw this sentiment and knew it was PERFECT for my Mom. She is a quilter. And just like we paper crafters have more paper than we can ever use in a lifetime, she has enough fabric to make enough quilts to rival an enitre Amish community. But she still buys fabric. Just like I still buy paper. This card was for Mom's birthday.
I used the sketch at the Stella Says Sketch challenge. And used Dottie Shops from the Bugaboo Stamps Store. Colored using Prismacolor pencils and Glossy Accents on her jewellry and bow. I also used Tim Holtz distress inks in Spun Sugar to ink round my image. The jewels are Jolee's Swarovski Elements.  Thought the wood look patterned paper really suited the sentiment. I was in the other room cutting the cake and I knew as soon as my Mom opened her card, she was laughing so hard.
Sentiment: Shopping with your Husband is like Hunting with the Game Warden :o)
I would like to share my card at:
Catch the Bug Challenge Stella Says Sketch, closes June 2,
Digital Tuesday Challenge just for laughs, closes June 5,  **Winner!!!**
