Hi all I am back again to tell you about the new challenge that has just started over at
this week it is
It has been awhile since I have tried something other than a card I found some instructions on Pinterest for a Book Card Holder which could also be made into a purse, I decided to try out the purse style.
I have used an image from SHEET 370 coloured with promarkers then cut out and adhered to the central die cut with silicone glue, the papers and card stock are from SU, I used a die cut for the frame, a Tonic punch for the butterfly then added an organza bow, flowers and pearls.

I used 6x4 cards for the inside and as this is a gift I decided to make some Christmas cards.  This card box will hold up to 6 cards and envelopes. 
I would like to enter my project into the following challenges:
I hope that you will come join us this week at
