Karen's Doodles - Anything But a Card

Happy Monday!  Whether or not we're ready... here it comes!  Maybe it's because I just attended a Baby Shower, but I'm reminded of having a baby.  Ready or not, here it comes!!!  Yikes!  That's been 22 and a half years ago for me.  Now I have a little furbaby, and just like the stork, he arrived at my home : )

Do you struggle with 'other than a card' challenges?  I love the beautiful projects I see on other blogs, but when it comes to deciding what to do for myself... I'm like a kid in a candy shop - I want it all lol!  I finally decided on this cute lil purse.  I love purses and I will usually revert back to this if not directed somewhere else.

This image is called Butterfly and Bee which is a 700 follower FREEBIE from Karen's Doodles on Paper Craft Planet.  Grab it while you can!!!  This is one image, but I've cut out the butterfly and glued it on the flap.

The purse template is from D.A.I.S.E. Company.  I don't think I followed the directions because it wasn't coming out right... duh!!!  I'll have to go back and actually read the directions.  It seemed simple enough.  Anyway, this is my version lol!  The DP is from DCWV, "Dancing Polka Dot"

Copics:  B02 B01 B00 B000 B0000; G28 G24 G21 G20; Y15 Y11 E13 E17; C9 C7 C5 R20
Wow, that's a lot of copics for such a little image hee hee!

I've generously coated a lot of this image with Glamour Dust which I see that Susana's Custom Art and Card Design now carries!  Oh Susana, where were you when I was searching high and low? lol!

Lace is from Stamp and Create.  I love this lace!!!  Half pearls and black velvet ribbon are from Michael's.  Oh... the pearl pin is from Wild Orchid Crafts!

So now that you've seen my project, you'll want to get all the deets at
