Here is the card I have made for my daughter's workmate who kindly gave me a lovely cross/body purse. After my back surgery, I was struggling to control my poles for walking while carrying my purse. He gave the bag to my daughter to take home to me. It is pretty and has many compartments to organize my wallet, makeup, etc.
I hope he will like the colourful aspect to it. It is a little bolder than my usual style and I feel like I am going out on a bit of a limb here...but hopefully he will like it.
The large shimmery fuschia swirl is the front flap of a bridal invitation. Michael's was clearing a box of 25 for 30 cents at that infamous clearance sale. Not only do you get the shimmery flourish, you also get a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch fuschia shimmer page which the flourish is attached to. A wee bit of careful cutting apart, a bit of trimming with my cutter, and voila... a single sheet and a flourish x 25. That is just over a penny apiece!
I picked up a box so expect to see more cards made with this bright colour. When I saw it on the shelf, I thought it might work for Dora cards for little girls if it was combined with hot orange and purple. Or perhaps it might work for Disney princess or even Barbie cards!
While I was putting it away, I suddenly remembered this Tinseltown Glitter Ice flower which I have had for several years.A snippet of black damask paper, a snippet of black polka dot DP, a few little rhinestone blingy flowers, a couple of blingy butterflies and a string of black diamond bling and Alakazam (as little Mr P would say) it was done.
