Joanne's 5,000 hit prize giveaway

After jumping from one blog to another, came across this blog site of Joanne's where she is giving away some prizes as she has had over 5000 visitors to her site. The challenge appeared to be easy "make a different shaped card using a cute stamped image". No problems I thought until I went hunting for a suitable stamp. In the end I borrowed one of my daughters stamp as it made me laugh when I saw it. I have cut the card out with a "handbag" style, covered with some small flowery paper, used some twine to wrap around the handle to give it a more realistic look. Stamped the image onto white card and water coloured in using my sakura stardust pens. I knew it wasn't quite right so went hunting again, this time in my own stash :-) and found some shrink plastic, happy days. Stamped the image again and used same colours to match bigger image then shrunk - hey presto a small bag charm. Found some metal rope beads, threaded them through and finally put some flower ribbon on top and bottom. Reminds me of a very popular handbag design that would have a small Scottish terrier as their logo ;-) Hope you enjoy it.
