Gingersnap Creations' Trip to Fifth Avenue

A new month always means a new fun at Gingersnap Creations. This month, they are doing a tribute to retail therapy with a Shopping Theme! They are starting off with a brand-new theme challenge - At the Mall! How fun!

I thought immediately of a long-neglected stamp I bought when I was first starting out. I realized that she would be great copiced (is that a word?). Anyway, from there, the card just came together!

May saw the return of sponsors to the Gingersnap Creations challenges and for June we are lucky to have the fabulous Altered Pages website as our sponsor. Definitely a go-to location for any mixed media or papercraft artist. I used a collage sheet from Altered Pages website for the background, cutting the money images in half and randomly placing them around the edge of my card for a fun frame!

Made of Money
Stamp: New York Socialite (Stamps Happen)
Collage Images: Foreign Money (Altered Pages website)
Cardstock: Glorious Green and Whisper White (Stampin Up)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Copics: B21, B23, B24, E00, E02, E09, E11, E53, G05, G07, G19, YR21, YR23, YR24.
Tools: circle cutter (Creative Memories)

Hope you get a great bargain on inspiration today! Stop by Gingersnap Creations to see more shopping themed art!
