A Vintage Handbag card!

Hi y'all!

I hope you've had a nice weekend and are ready and full of energy for the week ahead!

We've just arrived from the Christmas Lights Switch On here in Inverness... it was so nice! Alaia really enjoyed it, Santa made an appearance (plus Mickey Mouse, Tigger and Minions???) and there were Christmas Carols sang by local children from different music and dance schools in the area. The best was seeing Alaia's face, all excited and full of smiles... Amazing!!!!

Today I'm bringing you two of my favourite things... card-making and handbags!!!!
It's a shaped card. As I don't have any shaped dies I made it myself, drew it and cut it with scissors.

 I tried to give it a Vintage look, using the colours brown and cream, and the beautiful stamps of the Postcard  and mannequin.
The image is a digital stamp from Digi Darla called "Girls Night Out". 
I coloured the image with my Promarkers: Vanilla, sandstone, buttermilk, raw sienna and the blender pen;
 and covered her skirt with chunky gold glitter.

The papers are from my K&Company paper pad and from the First Editions Dessert Bloom pad. 

I created the sentiment myself (the quote is from Coco Chanel), and created the tag with my new tag die from Joy Crafts.

The flowers and pearl are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I cut the leaves with my Marianne Creatables die.
The buttons and gold bow are from local shops.

It is also decorated on the inside with the same brown paper and a scallop circle die cut for the greeting.
