Purse shaped card!

Hello!  I'm so happy that it's Saturday!  I love when the weekends are here and I have lots of time to play in my craft room.  :-) 
I have really enjoyed being a guest designer over at Freshly Brewed Challenges this month.   Heather, the owner and designer of Fresh Brewed Designs has been so very sweet and personable.  I've really enjoyed getting to know her and her very talented and lovely Design Team.
This weeks challenge over at Freshly Brewed Challenges is a SHAPE CARD!  This will be my last card as a guest designer for the month of July there.  This means that I will be drawing a winner for my Blog Candy!
PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO WRITE A COMMENT UNDER MY Celebration BLOG CANDY SO THAT YOU WILL BE ENTERED INTO THE DRAWING TO WIN THE "BEACH BUMS" RUBBER STAMP!  There are only 7 people in the drawing out of 36 followers.  I want everybody to have a chance to win.
I had lot's of fun making this card!  I used my Fresh Brewed Designs, "Caution Contents are Hot" rubber stamp.  I LOVE THIS STAMP!!!  It's so very classy and versatil.  I colored her with copic markers and painted her white dress with Inspirations Fairy Dust shimmer paint from Fresh Brewed Designs. The lovely hounds tooth cardstock is from my DCWV "the Mademaiselle stack"  I simply folded a 11" X 5 1/2" piece of cardstock in half and trimmed both sides with a slight diagonal.  Then I added  some pink design paper to the top of my purse and some plain white cardstock that I trimmed with my SU scallop punch.
I  punched out a round scallop shape from my nestabilities for the flap of the purse.
I used my SU tag punch to punch out my typed sentiment "Celebrate In Style"
Finally, I added ribbon and bling.

And here is a picture with my sweet Beagle, SUZIE Q, checking my card out and sticking her nose into my picture!
