PPA......Color Challenge Purse

TGIF Peeps!!!

Today I have a fun little purse to share with you. I found the tutorial for this little cutie here. I used the color challenge on the Pals Paper Arts blog for the colors of my purse. The challenge colors are Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede and Crushed Curry. I used the Thoroughly Modern DS paper for the body of my purse. The little front pocket is DS paper from the same pack and I added a bit of scallop trim with my Scallop Edge Punch. The crushed curry come into the purse in the form of my little flower key chain. I also used some old olive. the flower and the leaves are made with the 5 petal flower punch. I added some brads to the handles to secure them a bit more and a brad to the flower center.

I have to admit I am NOT a 3-D person. I struggle a bit with these type of things and it did take three tries for me to get a presentable one. One thing I might suggest if you go to make one of these, I found it easier to attach the top of the purse to the base of the purse before adhering the bottom together. I just thought it was too hard to get the top into the bottom when it was taped together.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!!
