I really wanted this card to look like an antique purse. What do you think? Did it work? Can you see it as a purse?

The sentiment is stamped onto the designer paper which is cut/embossed with Spellbinders Labels Eight. I added the purple panel which is cut/embossed with Spellbinders Labels Ten. The cameo is stamped onto vanilla card stock using Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate ink and cut/embossed using Spellbinders Labels Ten and used a Copic marker around the edges. I punched a hole in the top and added the silk ribbon bow. I used my sewing machine to stitch the lace to the botton and added gold cord for the handle.

I keep getting kicked off when I try to comment. I certainly can see this as an antique purse, or even an eyeglass case. Very pretty with a vintage feel to it.
