   I had some old paper that I had designed several years ago when getting to grips with a graphics program in my stash. The wording on it is 'shop till you drop' so it seemed appropriate for this image.
   I wrapped brown satin ribbon round it and then matted and layered it onto brown core'dinations cardstock and white card.
   The image is another one from Crafter's Companion Scruffy Little Cat collection of stamps and is called 'Ashleigh' and was coloured using Promarkers. Using a Spellbinders labels eight die I cut out the image and went round the edge with a brown Promarker pen. I also used the same die to cut out the brown mirri card which I attached to the card before attaching the offset image with glue gel.
   I folded more of the ribbon to form a bow and fastened this to the card. A wooden butterfly from Hooy Cutz was glue gelled in the centre of this. The card was finished with a coloured peel off sentiment.
