Little purse

Little Purse - Here is a little purse that I made for the Fancy Folds challenge at Craft Your Days Away. Fancy folds is one of my favorite challenges. They are time consuming to make, but are always masterpieces.

I can not take credit for this design, as I found it on another blog, who had found it here.

This is the side view of the purse.
This is the inside of the purse when it is opened up.
Here is the outside of the purse, again opened up.

My DP is Pressed Petals, Baby Boy pack. Can you believe that all that purple was intended for little boys? When my son was little, I had a pair of shorts that had a little bit of purple in the plaid design and my husband had a fit. He would really have a cow if I used this paper to scrapbook a boy page. But that is OK, as you can see I found a better use of it. LOL

The flowers are from a stem that I clipped off. The butterfly is a MS punch and I added some Viva Decor white pearls to make up it's body.
We are sponsored this fortnight by Meljen's Digital Stamps. Meljen's designs are so cute and color up so quickly. But despite how quickly they can be done, I have never seen one colored that I didn't like.
Here is a close up of my center, inside image. Isn't this little ballerina adorable?

I started taking ballet lessons a few years back. It is something that I have always wanted to do and now that my own children are on their own, I can finally do some of the things that I enjoy. My first year, it was just me and a bunch of beginning 10 year olds. The instructor asked if I wanted to be in the recital and I told her that I definitely did. I wanted more than 40 years to take ballet classes and I definitely wanted the full experience. Everyone was so supportive of me, and the next year, I was not the only older woman in my class.
The other image my Meljen that I used was this gorgeous rose. I used 4 of them and added some Stickles to the inside of the rose. I also used my Sakura pen on the swirls.

I hope you will try this card/purse and enter it in the Craft Your Days Away challenge. It really was easy to do and I love the result.
