This card was for a very dear friend on her birthday. She LOVES handbags so this oldie-but-goodie set--Tote-ally Fantastic--from My Favorite Things was the perfect set to use for her (I see it's currently sold out, but keep checking back). The sentiment inside says, "You give 'Bag Lady' a whole new meaning." Heh, heh.
I'm using My Favorite Things Sketch for this week--#88--for this card. This challenge and the new My Favorite Challenge starts today, so head on over to the forum and check it out!
The image is stamped on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers and paper pieced. My patterned paper is Tangerine Dream mini paper by Jenni Bowlin and my card stock is Tempting Turquoise and Ruby Red, run through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder for the base card layer. Double layer photo corners carry out the sketch elements and a little turquoise ribbon with a purse "charm" finish it off!
I'm so glad you dropped by today!
