Card for shopaholic

It's Monday again. But it's not like any other Monday. Today, 21 years ago, Estonia regain its independence. Even though I was born while we were in Soviet Union I started my school years in free Estonian Republic. Have you seen "The Singing Revolution" a film by Maureen and James Tusty? If you have a chance, I recommend to watch it. 

But now to a new challenge at Paper Makeup Stamps Digi Makeover Challenge. This week we want to see a tent-topper card.

Here is mine example. I used a Retail Therapy digi set to make my topper. I made my own pattern paper but this time I used ink and stamp to make it, instead of computer. I also made some faux paper piecing to cover few bags. I printed out two images on white paper. From one of them I cuted out few bags and stamped a pattern on them. After that I glued them on place. 

All these gifts are for you...
Then I planned this card, it felt a little boring (specially from inside). So I thought I'll make a pocket to inside and made a sentiment which I thought will be suitable with the image. Sentiments says: "All these gifts are for you..."(on cover) and "...but you have to get them from store yourself" (inside). 

...but you have to get them from store yourself
After receiver takes the money out of the pocket, she sees the sentiment "Happy birthday!"

So this is my take of the tent-topper card :o) Now I'd love to see yours. Please check also what my team-mates from PMS has made for inspiration. Our this week guest designer is Rachel Fisher and please welcome our newest team member Ardilla.
