There She Goes List Challenge TSG48

Last weekend, my son and I went to the outlet mall, and every time I go out there, I like to stroll around the Coach store just to look, basically making sure there isnt a handbag that I "must have". Lately, that has been the case. But, last weekend, there was a super cute bag that I really wanted, but my budget said NO. So, instead of dreaming of a handbag that wasnt meant to be, I found this adorable stamp set from MFT called Totally Fabulous. And, it was on sale! So, not only did I get my handbag fix with a stamp set, but it was on sale. What more can you ask for? HAHA...

I paired a couple of challenges with this card. First, the sketch at Our Creative Corner, and the second, the list challenge at There She Goes. The list challenge is this:
3 different colors:(I chose)Black, Rose Red & Bermuda Bay
2 different dp:(I chose) Rose Red dsp & Night and Day dsp
1 button: I got this button from one of the extras off a shirt
1 ribbon:(I chose) Bermuda Bay
no other embellishments.

I paper pieced the skirt with Rose Red dsp, and her shirt with textured black cs. I added glossy accents to her handbag to give it a patent leather effect. I also used a very vanilla watercolor wonder crayon to give the effect of a store front window.  

Stamps: Totally Fabulous (MFT)
Paper: Bermuda Bay, Rose Red, Rose Red dsp,
Night & Day dsp Watercolor
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black
Coloring Medium: Prismacolors
Tools/Accessories: Bermuda Bay Ribbon, misc button, word window,
Ticket corner punch, scallop edge punch,
Very vanilla crayon, Glossy Accents
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you like what you see!

I love this stamp. I have a fascination with handbags but I don't use them. They always fall of my shoulder. But I love how they look. So I LoVE sets with cute purses. This card just catches my eye. Love your colors Christi. Hi girl.
