Friday Sketcher Challenge #69 + Tutorial, YNS updates

Hello and happy weekend, yeah!
My niece Vivian and I are just having so much fun in the craftroom. Now that I finished a card and I have so many pictures to post. Guess what, I even did a little tutorial for this post, so please scroll down to the bottom for this little tutorial.

This card I made for the Friday Sketcher Challenge #69. The stamp set I used is called "Shopper Fhiona" (11 pieces stamp set) from Your Next Stamp and now that they are having a 'SECRET SALES' that is offering free shipping for any buyer anywhere. Just remember to enter code SS1 when you checkout.

Here is a closer view on Fhiona. I have posted a little tutorial on how to do her shopping bag. Please scroll down for that.
I think the sentiment & this wallet from this stamp set are a pricelss combo.
These images are also included in the Shopper Fhiona stamp set.
Here is a closer view to show the dimension of this card.

Tutorial for how to add tissue paper to a shopping bag image:
Step 1:
Color the image
Step 2:
Use a blade to cut a little opening for the shopping bag.
Step 3:
Cut a little piece of tissue paper and color it with a marker (For this sample, I used a Copic Marker)
Step 4:
Fold the colored tissue paper shape like a table napkin
Step 5:
Tuck the little piece of tissue in the opening on the image.
Step 6:
Here is the finished look.
