Purse Card

This was my first attempt at creating a purse card. I just wish I would wisen up someday. If only I would have taken a template or measurements from somewhere .. but you know, when your just bubbling with inspiration at the craft desk, you dont want to run back to the computer and surf for some templates, it just kinda acts like a wet blanket. So I just improvised and used my own measurements. In the end, it turned out “not too bad”. I will surely want to try it out again, but differently and make a couple of more changes too. For now, this is my first purse card.

I focused more on getting the design right so less emphasis is made on the embellishments and stamping etc.

I’ll let you be the judge for this card.

This card was not inspired by any one purse card challenge as such, so it really does not fit anyone particular sketch challenge but there are some random challenges, that it will enter. Luckily for me, due to the valentine season, nearing us, alot of challenges are either asking for the use of a valentines theme, hearts or an I{heart}U.   🙂
