Fancy Purse!

Would you believe that I have a terrible cold......again? Seriously? Don't those germs know I don't have time to be sick? ; ) This weeks is crazy busy with all of the end of the school year stuff creeping up on me....Cort's prom...her birthday.....Kyle caddying at the country club....the list seems to go on and on.

I do have a shaped card to share with you that uses my Cricut and the Kate's ABC's cartridge.  I also used two sets by JustRite here.  First to create the pattern on the purse, I used the Elegant Fronds background stamp.  I stamped it in Versamark and sprinkled it with white embossing powder.  I did all of this after the purse had already been cut. The sentiment is from the Vintage Rose Medallions set.
Love the look of embossing! : )

I had this funky plastic flower in my stash since the beginning of time, I swear.  Not sure who makes it actually....but thought it worked well here.  I added a bit of glitter, seam binding, and some pearls to finish it off.  Since my purse opens at the top, I used just a tiny Velcro piece to keep the purse closed. 

Thanks for stopping by for a visit! Have a wonderful (and healthy)....Monday! : )

It's fancy and gorgeous - love your glittery outlook on projects (and life)! Your purse is amazing - love the pearl "button closure", the plastic flower (oh my goodness - who knew there was such perfection in plastic flowers) and your background stamp - divine! Feel better soon!

Oh no! Hope this one is really short lived. I did something similar and I wasn't sure if it was a relapse of the first one or a completely new cold, but it seemed like it took forever to start feeling well. This purse is stunning!!! Love it!
