Thursdays with Lindsay

Good Morning!  I am totally loving this week - it's a week of  "I'm back" posts.  LOL!  Well, today's edition is "I'm back with Thursdays with Lindsay."

For my monthly card traders group, the challenge was to create a purse card.  I was going to post the link where this pattern was found, but when I clicked on the link, the photo had been removed.  But I had gone a step further and asked very sweet Penny Duncan to turn this pattern into an SVG file for me so that I can make this task just a bit easier.  She was very nice and did.




Here's the front of the purse card.  I was thrilled to finally be able to use these gorgeous Prima flowers I had picked up weeks ago!  And I know what you're thinking - this isn't exactly Lindsay's Stamp Stuff stuff.  Well, take a look inside this purse...




This stunning purse is lined with Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Uptown Houndstooth Cranberry fabric, ahem, paper.  The sentiment panel was created with my own sentiment and then decorated with Pretty Border.  This card would create a perfect gift card holder.

Supplies:
Card Stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Real Red
Paper:  Uptown Houndstooth (LSS)
Copics:  R27, R29, Y15, YG95
Embellishments:  Prima flowers, Rub-On (American Crafts), Pearl (Wilton), White Organdy
Tools:  White Gel Pen, SCAL/Cricut

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I do.  I think it's lovely and a special thanks to Penny for helping me make this card easier.  Be sure to stop by Lindsay's blog for this week's freebie and inspiration.  And then hop along to the design team's blogs for even more inspiration and eye candy!  You're in for a treat as Tracy Vinson joins the team this week.  Thanks for stopping by!

Oh!  One more thing - be sure to stop by Deedee's Digis CDAC group throughout the day.  We're having a Luau and you're invited.
