A girl and her bag.

I made this card for a challenge posted by Melissa Phillips on her blog, LilyBean's Paperie. This is one of my favorite blogs. Seriously. I try not to covet, but I'm telling you, if I had half her talent, I'd be a happy woman. Melissa + paper = magic. Go look and just see if you can argue with me!

Anyway, she's giving away the cutest bag, you should really go look and try for it yourself! I thought my Stampabilites purse lady stamp would be just the ticket! Then I remembered my brand new GinaK set, Tag Lines, and isn't this sentiment perfect? I used very old SU! Spring Flowers DP. I still think it's pretty! As usual for me lately, I added Shimmerz in Angel Wings. The brown flower was cut with a Spellbinders die, Flower Creations. I LOVE this die, and hope to get another one for my birthday!!

I do apologize for the picture. I had a hair appointment right after school, then had to go pick up my phone, and the light was gone when I got home. I finally decided to go ahead and take a picture, then discovered the battery was dead in my Canon EOS. So I used DH's camera. No comparison!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH Where did you get that 'shut up!' text? Gina K? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA oh man, Carla! I'm completely hearing the voice of Stacy from WHAT NOT TO WEAR! hahahaha ... go check out my blog post today (fantasy shopping trip) -- if I wore that first outfit, Stacy would be forced to say SHUT UP! to me cuz I'd be looking so smokin' good!

p.s. I love the polka dot ribbon.

I think the pic is just fine and I love the way you layered the "shut up". And the "shut up" is awesome! And the pants almost look like leopard print leather. Cool. And it looks like you stitched it too. I can't sew. No way. Love the card.
