Purse-onally Perfect Notes

I purchased the template and instructions from Becky Roberts.  I followed the template for the purse only.  Everything else I did on my own.  The flowers on the purse were made by taking 6 scalloped punched circles (SU Scallop Punch)  once they were punched, I wet the and then crumpled them up.  I let them dry a bit and then I unfolded them.  Stack them one on top of the other, punch a hole in the middle using your Crop-o-dile.  I used a gem brad as the center.  I crumpled the flower up again layer by layer.  I let them sit a bit and then I just moved everything around with my finger to loosen the flower up a bit

Accessories:  Beautiful Butterflies bigz dies, Butterflies Embosslit, Dimensionals, Bermuda Bay Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, Scalloped Circle Punch

Purse of cards

I paid Becky Roberts for the instructions.  My cards are not like hers, but I like them just the same.  These purses are very easy to put together and you can really get creative!

This is what I have been up to!

I made this card for a friend who is attending a same sex wedding. 
 I am really happy with the way it turned out
I made this card using the Brick Wall technique.  Not bad for my first time.  When I use this technique again, I will use a bigger image to stamp.  It takes a little bit of time, but the results are worth it.
I really like this stamp set.  It's masculine without being a motorycycle, cards, etc.
