Birthday Purse Card

Honestly I'm addicted to making purse cards! It's official!
Victorian Tapestry Purse from Huguet
I was inspired by this picture posted in the Moxie Fab Blog two weeks ago. I saved the photo and was inspired to make a purse card based on the photo inspiration. This is sort of a personal challenge for me!
My daughter Stephanie thought this purse card is "pretty good" (that's considered a B+  from her!). But then she said : "But seriously....who carries a purse like THAT!?" (LOL).
I will have a purse card tutorial post next week, so do come back and check it out.  I'm starting to pack for my trip now. So for those of you that worry that I can never get ready for the UK trip....no worries!  I will be ready when that time comes :)
