Shopping...anytime, anywhere

So, I actually did go shopping...but it was last week, I just haven't managed to sit at the computer to write about it. My cousin Vicky is in town for a couple of weeks (visiting from Germany) so of course we went on a shopping spree in the states. We came back over the border with my trunk FULL of stuff...prices here are at least half of what they are in Germany!!
I made this card ('cause of course shoes were among the many things we bought..LOL). I finally got around to using one of my MFT sets called "Window Shopping"...unfortunately my wallet can attest to the fact that I didn't just window shop...GRIN!!

Vicky needed a gift card holder so I made this for her to bring back to Germany...(that would be why you probably don't understand the word in the circle!!)
I used SU's Old Olive, More Mustard and Bashful Blue for the layers. A small scrap of Creative Imaginations paper was all I could manage to fit but the stripes in it matched the colours I chose so perfectly I had to fit it in somewhere. I water coloured the image and added some Apricot Baubles from stamping Bella for some bling. I did the sentiment on my printer and punched it out with SU's 1 1/4 circle punch.

Thanks for looking!!
