Birthdays are like purses . . .

Hi, and happy Saturday! I have a lot of March birthdays to make cards for and squeezed in this little ditty yesterday afternoon. (Taking the time to make it was a little treat to myself after surviving a busy, busy week. Some days you've just GOT to take a little time for yourself for the sake of sanity, right?)


I was inspired to make this girly card by the current challenge over at Just Punch It: Make It Girly. I made that cute little purse with the Stampin' Up! round tab punch and two of the SU oval punches (to make the handle). The purse flap is just a snippet of patterned paper trimmed from the end of a scalloped-oval punch (again, from SU). These punches came together to create a rather stylish little handbag, don't you think?? I searched through some of my old stamp sets and came up with one from Skipping Stones with a bunch of purse-related sentiments. So, you saw the first part of the sentiment ("Birthdays are like purses"), and here's the wink-wink punchline inside:


Tee--hee!!

And since I've used washi tape on my project, I'm linking this up to the current Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge: It's a Wash, to use washi tape. I love my washi!

Thanks for dropping in for a little slice of bliss today! Have a great weekend,
Emily

That is too cute!!! lol Love the 'punched' purse and the funny sentiment. I love how punches can be used to make other things. Some are better than what the punch was originally intended for.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend! They fly by too fast.
Thanks for sharing this fun idea. :)

Gosh, isn't this the truth! Just today, I had trouble remembering one of my fave flowers' names. Yikes. Makes me scared. :/

I love the background paper behind the purse...so apropos!
