Shopping Willow

I made this card using Shopping Willow from the new City Girl collection illustrated by Elisabeth Bell.

I paired Willow with the beautiful Porcelain collection from BasicGrey. Inspired by Rachel's card here, I cut the tops of the shopping bags open and stuffed some tissue paper in them. I also decided to paper piece Willow's shopping bags using some scraps from making this card.

I made this card using Sketch #89 from Friday Sketchers. I think this card is perfect for a girl's birthday with a gift card attached! =)

That's all I have for today. Please go and check out all the new stamps from the City Girl collection at Whiff of Joy Stamps!

What a great idea to put tissue in the bags and paper piece the bags themselves! Your card turned out FABulous Alice. I just received my very first Willow stamps... the City Girl collection... in yesterday's mail. I can't wait to ink them up. Visiting your blog is making me go broke! LOL!!!
