Hand Bag Card

Hi everyone,

Hope you are enjoying the weather be it hot or our winter cold, my family in the UK are melting with the heat, I think it was the hottest summer since 1979 - OMGoodness doesn't that sound such a long time ago LOL..

I have a lovely card that I made from a design that came with my new Crafters Companion Ultimate Pro board, I loved the design as soon as I saw it - very "Girly" and I bet I will be using this a lot for family and friends birthdays coming up soon.

It is the Quilt & Craft Fair in Melbourne this weekend and I know that Debbie Pamment is going to be there, she has recently celebrated a birthday and as we haven't meet before but emailed lots, I thought I would make her a card, we both live around the Melbourne area (different suburbs) I thought it was too good an opportunity to miss.

Mini Tilda with Two Rosettes

I love Fairies, Butterflies and anything Pinky/Mauve.
I've used purple card stock from Paper2, the Handbag design was quite easy to make. 
For the embellishment I placed a paper doily under a Spellbinders circle die cut with a white paper daisy flower (Paper2) coloured with Copic markers.

 Memory Box Chloe butterfly (large) is edged with Kaisercraft Aubergine ink, the smaller butterfly Marianne design #CR1205 again coloured with aubergine ink, finally the flourish is Joy crafts Vintage Borders 6002/0163.
 A gem on the daisy and Ranger Star Dust stickles to add a little sparkle. 

I think Tilda sits just perfectly on the butterflies.

Inside the card I have used vellum with a Birthday greeting stamp from my stash.
Whoops, I forgot the little scrap of ribbon for the handle -  

I hope you like this little effort and thanks for stopping by.

I would like to enter this in to the following challenges:
