Taylored Expressions August Blog Hop

Welcome to the August Blast from the Past Blog Hop from Taylored Expressions! Hopefully you arrived here from Vicki's blog; if not, you can start at the beginning at the Taylored Expressions blog.
The theme this month was to use some material that we have been keeping for that special card. For this part of the challenge I chose to use my Stella and Rose paper, which never seems to make it to the card even though I love it!! I also dusted off the primas and put them on my card. I have so many and rarely use them anymore, though they seemed perfect for this little shopaholic.
This image is my oldest daughter. She loves to shop and loves shopping at the big girl stores like American Eagle and A&F (she's only ten and doesn't really fit in them yet, but can't wait!). The logo on Olivia's shirt here was just too much for me!!
I colored Olivia with copics and cut the image out slightly to fit this awesome sketch by Sankari Wegman:
I added a scallop border to the horizontal panel of designer paper. The background panel of grey is embossed with swiss dots. A ribbon and a prima accessory were all the finishing touches that Olivia needed after a busy day of shopping!
Thanks for stopping by today. Next stop on the hop is Kristie. Enjoy the rest of the blog hop!!
Supplies used:
Stamps - Taylored Expressions Moka Collection Olivia
Ink - Memento black
Paper - Bazzill cardstock, MME Stella and Rose Hazel dsp
Accessories - Copics, Cuttlebug EF, brads, primas, satin ribbon, scallop border punch
