Floral Pocketbook Birthday Card

I created this pocketbook card for my sister's birthday...I love the rosebud print paper which I have had in my stash for a long time and wanted to use it as a base for the purse...I was going for a very floral and feminine look...I added 3 layers of the maroon lace, a big, pink paper flower, some adhesive pearls and the rose colored ribbon for the handle...My sister loves butterflies so I punched one out of pink card stock and added pink glitter to it for a little sparkle...I also edged the floral paper in Victorian Velvet distress ink...She loved the card and I'm so happy about that...Happy Birthday Helene!!!

Well, it''s time to move on to Halloween cards and maybe some tags, too...So, I'm looking forward to having fun with that...I love this time of year and it has turned delightfully cool here in the Boston area with some of the trees already starting to turn...I'll be back soon with some Halloween treats...Thank you for stopping by my blog......Kathy
