Card: Designer Handbag

I had such a lovely time last night making a card for a very good friend.  My friend and work mate Nita is a designer bag fiend.  So when it came to a card idea for her birthday this week it was a no brainer.

With the help of a couple of purse die from Kasazz, some gorgeousness K & Company paper, some charms, pearls and paint I came up with this card.

For Nita it had to be a little bit special so I made her a little designer tag, an address book, she had to have her make-up (there's lipstick to...) and of course a girl needs her keys.  And with a planned holiday just over the horizon one must keep the passport handy...

I originally made the smaller bag to act as a make-up purse, but it was just a little to big.  So some tissue paper and some Hershey Kisses and it is just a little bonus gift.

Here's a little peek inside the back, you can see that the address book fits perfectly (and provides a great place for our team to write little messages).  Tucked in the inside pocket you can see her lipstick...she never goes anywhere without it.  And the make-up is now closed and tucked in ready to be pulled out for a touch up at any time.

Hope she loves it..  I sure had fun making it.
