My Bestie Went Shopping

This card is a bit of an odd one for me, mostly because I tried to combine too many challenges together and whilst it looks ok and I do quite like it, I feel it's missing something. This card is for Crafty Little Fairies Challenge Shopping, My Besties Aussie Challenge #7 to use pearls and bling (I used Liquid Pearls and Stickles Glitter Glue although my satin ribbon is quite shiny too!), A Creative Romance's Bingo Challenge (I used pearls (well Liquid Pearls), ribbon and twine) and for Sketchy Challenges #68 to use the sketch below.


I am trying to use up some of my old retired SU patterned paper packs and this is one set I have 2 packs of, so will be a while before I get through it all. To try and use up a bit more I made a bigger card than usual and went with a 5 x 7 inch card, but I didn't use very much of it! Anyway here it is...


Recipe:

Stamps: My Besties IMG162 from Sherri Baldy

Papers: Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Very Vanilla, Everyday Enchantment DSP (Retired) all from Stampin' Up, Copic X-Press It Blending Card

Inks: Copic Markers

Accessories: Pool Party Ribbon (Retired), Brights Buttons (Retired), Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine (Retired) all from Stampin' Up, Heart Border Die from Papertrey Ink (used as scallops), Baby Blue Liquid Pearls, Icicle Stickles

Copics Used: 
Skin - E000, E00, E01, R20, R30
Hair, Shoes & Eyes - E42, E33, E44
Blues - BG10, BG11, BG13
Greens - YG91, YG93, YG95
Reds - R17, R24 (I have only 2 or 3 red Copics that have not run out of ink and I have no reinkers. I have ordered some so hopefully I will have a set of coordinating reds again very soon!)

And that's all from me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by.
