It's a Purse Thing!

Happy Monday! I have a gorgeous pumpkin patterned purse to share with you today...I know a certain someone (Dana) who would probably love to have one just like this in real life! Actually, I've missed my BFF Danabella the past almost two weeks because first I was away then she was away (you need to understand that we chat every week day on the phone) so I think I was channeling Dana when I made this card last night. Glad you're home my friend so we can chat this afternoon...I've missed you!  :)

The image is slouchy purse from Stamping Bella and it's quite fun to work with. I decided to paper piece the image with papers from my 365' Degrees 6x6 paper pack by Pink Paislee. The buckles are coloured with a dark blue Spica glitter pen. The layout is Jen's Sketch For You To Try from Saturday.

I used my corner chomper to round the bottom corners before stitching the layers together. My sewing machine's acting up a little...see that one missed stitch in the bottom left corner??? Argh!!! WHY is it doing that??? I can't figure out what the problem is with my Janome so if anyone knows, please help, because it's driving me bananas!!! So after that little sewing mishap I put myself in a good mood again by making a rolled paper flower for the accent. I finished it with a hyacinth Bonbon in the center for a little shine.

Have you already got your card done for this week's Bellarific Friday? If not, there's still plenty of time to play along...simply email a photo of your card (using Stamping Bella images) to Em by Thursday evening to be included in the Friday round-up on Bloggabella. Here's the sketch for this week's challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!
