Shop 'til you drop handbag card

Hi folks! Here's a card I made using the Shopping Diva stamp set. Such a great image, it inspired me to have a go at making a shaped handbag card.
I cut the handbag shape using my Cricut (I think this shape was from one of the Mickey Mouse Cartridges!) The pretty pink polka dot paper is by ATD (American Traditional designs) I stamped the swirls with the glue pad from Martha Stewart's 'Glitter Stamping Starter Kit' and rubbed on some silver transfer foil. It's the first time I have used the foil sheets and I'm really impressed with the results. I just used a quickie glue pen to adhere the foil for the clasp. I coloured the image with Copic Markers and added a touch of gloss accents to her sunglasses. I cut out the image with a slight border to help her stand out from the background. I added a dotty ribbon bow and the sentiment (from the stamp set) which I cut out with scalloped scissors and shaped with my fingers before adhering with glue gel.

I finished off the inside using more of the papers, ribbon and my Nestabilities. A pretty card for shopaholics everywhere.

Ciao for now!
