(Men are like purses)
Time for another Skipping Stones Design sketch challenge! I'm going to miss this gig come February :) Today's card uses a brand-new, super fun set called Birthday Purses.
Ready for the inside?
(cute, full of crap, and totally replaceable)
Here's a look at the full set:
Gotta love a cute purse (or three), and aren't these sentiments awesome?!
Here's the sketch, SSD60:
I hope you'll play along! All you have to do is link your creation up to the SSD#60 post on the Skipping Stones Design blog. There may be goodies ... just sayin' ;)
My sketch sample is pretty straightforward. The three purses are paper-pieced with patterns from Cosmo Cricket's DeLovely collection, then layered onto a lacy circle die-cut. For the strips along the left, I just used some more DeLovely scraps. The sentiment flag is attached with a button and some Pink Sorbet baker's twine. The pink die-cut border on the inside (totally crooked - eek! I can't believe I didn't catch that beforehand!) was done with Papertrey's Victorian Lace border die, and the sentiment is die-cut with a Spellbinders Labels Fourteen die. I don't think I've ever dry-embossed the inside of a card, but the panel was lying there (a reject for the card front), and I thought why not?
I made this card for a good friend who could use a little cheer in the "men" department. She will know exactly who those three purses represent - teehehe! Time for a new purse, B____!
