Forever Young Purse and Card

I wanted Forever Young especially for the purses. I love purses and my family groans when I stop to look at them--LOL! When I sat down to create something tonight I planned on the purse, but then decided to make a card to go with it. I love how it turned out!

I set the expression to fit to page for the purse and it cut out at 5 1/4 inches. When I went to make the flower the same size, it was huge! So I re-cut that out at 2 1/4 inches. I pop dotted it on and curled the edges a bit. Then I added stickles and a Prima pearl to the center.

Next I wanted to use one of the girls on the cartridge. This is number 3 and cut at 6 inches. I tried smaller but didn't like it as much. Since it was so tall, I made the length of the card 7 inches. I used the same paper as the bag for the background and added some pearls (one of the items in the the blog candy!) to her hair and one on her bag. I used some blue ribbon down the side and decorated with the same pearls. Lastly, I stamped Fabulous! from Pink Stamper Friends and Family set in corner of the card. I believe my daughter is going to put a gift card in the purse and give the set to her friend for her birthday this weekend.
Be sure to enter for my blog candy--2 winners will be drawn Friday night!
