Peachy Keen Challenge #20

Good morning!  Welcome to Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge #20.  The challenge this week is to make our project or card in the shape of a purse, and to center the theme around Winter.  This purse tote was made with two sheets of 12x12 card stock.  I used the PK-015 Hildebrant Hearts.  This adorable sweetheart couple was a pleasure to color in the traditional pinks and reds to honor the day we celebrate sweethearts.  I stamped the hearts, cut them out, and popped them up on dimensionals.  The DP, ribbon, and brad I used is all from Stampin' Up!.  I used my Martha Stewart lace border punch for a little added pretty, both inside and out.  I apologize in advance for the quality of the photos (especially the first one).  Finding good light yesterday to get a good quality photo was probably the biggest challenge of all, and one I didn't meet!!  :-)



Here is a little closer look at this adorable snow couple.  In this photo you can see the liquid applique I used on her hat a little more clearly.  I did add some Dazzling Diamonds to the applique before I heat set it to give it a little more sparkle.



This is what the inside looks like when it's all unfolded.  The pouches inside are large enough to fit a standard size card and envelopes, a CD, or even 4x6 photos that you'd like to share with someone special. 

Please be sure to head over to the Peachy Keen Challenge Blog to share your creation for this challenge.  Just for playing along, you will be entered into a drawing for a fabulous prize.  While you're there, you MUST check out all the other gorgeous creations by Viv, Nikki, Emma, Jacqui, Janice, Angelica, and Kathy.  There's always an abundance of inspiration when this talented group is involved!!  Enjoy!!

Thank you for your visit today!  I wish you a day filled with blessings and happy stamping!!

Love ya,
Lorie
