I was asked by my friend (and Avon Lady) Sally to make a card for the birthday of a fiend of her daughters. I had made a card for her daughter that looked like a handbag and she wanted something similar so this is what I came up with. I am not entering it into any challenges. I concocted the shape for the bag because I didn't have a template and cut the pieces out of white card and covered them with a design paper that I printed off a CD Rom I have. I made it a nice girlie pink. The top flap of the bag decorated with flowers ties down with ribbon.
With the bag opened out you can see that I placed flowers and pearls in an arrangement on the facing side under a Happy Birthday sentiment. The inside is lined with the same paper. On the other flap you can just see a Tilda.
This photo shows her coloured using my Copics. I don't know what she is called so if you know please tell me. I mounted her on a criss-cross envelope I made. I covered the envelope using an unnamed spotted paper. I trimmed it with a Doily Lace border cut with a Martha Stewart punch. I hope it looks OK because I didn't have a template for this either. Inside the envelope is a tag with a sentiment called "Breezy Birthday" by Stampendous. This is stickled and glittered.
The flowers are wild Orchid and the ribbon and pearls are from my stash.
I hope you are still with me and I hope you like this creation. I wait with baited breath to find out from any comments you leave for me if you think it works. I really need to know because I don't have a lot of time to make something else if this isn't suitable. Opinions please -they would be much appreciated.
