Shopping bag!!

Welcome to Thursday my crafty buddies, it will soon be the weekend and a new month.

Speaking of new I am sharing a DT card that I made for the showcase of two new challenges that start today.

The Crafty Little Fairies are going Shopping and
As you Like It are getting 3d textural

Here is what I did

I made the card base by cutting a 5" strip from a 12x12 Teresa Collins embossed core'dinations pad, which I then sanded back to reveal the core. I used a saucer to round all four corners, then scored at 5",6" and 7" and creased to make a gusset.

 I lined the inside with papers and added a little pocket in which to put cash or a gift card and added some handles which I made using 2 SB circle dies and chopping in half. They stick together with half a velcro dot. I didn't have a shopping image, but what do you do when shopping with a friend? You stop for coffee, of course, and that's what these lovely ladies are doing!! Finally a touch of ribbon and  some pearls for more texture.
