{Kraftin' Kimmie} Pin It Up!

Hi there! I had so much fun last month guest designing for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, and Kim is such a great gal, that she asked me to stay on for November! Yay!! I am a huge fan and of course snatched the opportunity right up! Thanks Kimmie!
This weeks Krafty Challenge is 'Pin It Up'.... use pins in your project.
I decided to ink up my brand new, but never used Sarah Shopper from October's release. I do enjoy me some shopping, so this is a great stamp for me! But who the heck can shop in heels????? If it's a serious day of shopping (which it looks like it is for Sarah;), I lean towards running shoes or birkenstocks;)

I've coloured her with copics and paper pieced a couple of her shopping bags. The stamped panel was matted with a deckled rectange nestie and popped up on foam boosters. The dp's were stitched together with chocolate thread. An MFT dienamic cut the notebook edge on the espresso CS strip, and some silky Walnut Brown vintage seam binding from the Ribbon Carousel made a beautful bow. I attached the little 'Sale' tag (MFT dogtag die, TCP alphabet and SU linen thread) and stuck two fancy stick pins through the crinkly bow.

For the inside, I kept with the same dp and deckled rectangle dies, adding some satin SU ribbon between the patterns. The sentiment comes with this set and was stamped in Versamark for that nice, dark effect. The patterned paper is BasicGray's Indian Summer, and is a little on the gawdy side, but I got a steal of a deal, so I HAD to buy it. Sale, right??? You know it girls!!! LOL! So, I guess it kind of went with the theme of this card;) The sentiment cracks me up too!!! It's my new mantra;)

If you would like to play along with this week's challenge, link up your card to the KKS Blog here.
