Not a Hallmark

This challenge at Brown Sugar Challenges was more of a challenge to me as I don't do humour cards too well:

I have based the card on the sketch at Stella Says Sketch:

And as that had a border in the sketch, the card also fits the Catch the Bug recipe challenge:

This is the end result of combining the above challenges:

And this is the sentiment inside the card:

I have used some background paper from Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine.  The borders have been cut from pink cardstock using a Martha Steward Eyelet Lace Border Punch.  I added some glitter tape from American Crafts across the centre of the card and created a bow from a velvet shoelace.  The image is from Bugaboo and is Stella Psycho Shopper.  I also added a strip of rhinestones and pearls to give the card a bit of bling.  A little bit different for a christmas card with the bright colours and shopping paper but sometimes you need to have a different card!
