Good evening folks

I hope you have all had a good weekend. My husband and youngest 2 children arrived home safely late last night so I have spent today catching up with them and their washing! But I did manage a little crafting and here is the result - 
The challenge at Crafty Little Fairies is shopping so I thought if you are shopping you need your handbag so I made one of those too. Let's start with the card shall we - 
I began by matting and layering a 6 inch card blank with papers from First Edition's Boho Chic paper pad. I cut 3 different papers with Spellbinder's bracket borders 2, added them to the card base and wrapped a piece of peach satin ribbon (from the Ribbon Girl) around the card. The image is a Mo Manning stamp called Veronica which I coloured with the following Promarkers - 
  • skin - satin, blush, dusky pink and coral
  • hair - raw sienna, burnt sienna and henna
  • dress and shoes - soft peach, peach and mango
  • bag and parcel - oatmeal, apricot, spice, burnt orange, mandarin and copper (metallic marker)
  • shadows - pastel blue, warm grey 1 and warm grey 3
I cut the image out using Spellbinder's Grand decorative circles 1 and inked whist still in the die with scattered straw distress ink. I attached it to the card base using foam pads. I then cut a Die'namics plentiful petals and 2 flourishes and attached them to the card. I added a pearl to the centre of the flower.
I stamped 2 sentiments from LOTV's sentiment tags (set 24), cut them out and added them to the top corner of the card.

Now for the handbag - 
I made the bag from a Docraft's template which I have had for years and never used (tsk, tsk) and a paper from the Boho Chic paper pad. I followed the instructions and was really pleased with the result. I left the sides open so I could pop a small present into the box.
To finish I added a Die'namics plentiful petals flower, a flourish, a pearl and another sentiment from the sentiment tags set.

I would like to enter this card and bag into the following challenges - - #208 use die cuts and no punches - March card challenge - Birthdays

Thank you for stopping by.
