Birthday Purse

No new cards yet, but I wanted to share a purse I designed in July for a friends birthday. I gifted her with some of my jewelry pieces she had been admiring. She likes the art of paper crafting too, so I decided to make a unique gift bag to accompany the jewelry. I used retired Stampin' Up! design paper, lots of die cuts, chocolate chip colored paper and ribbon for the handles. Let's not forget the butterflies! After I completed the purse, I ran the scraps through my paper shredder, crinkled them up and added them as filler.

I just received a huge shipment of rubber stamps, supplies and the Big Shot!! Can hardly wait to play with that! Must concentrate on completing the card kits for the card class. Then I can attack my new toys. Cheers!
