A card to match the purse!

I loved the colors on my tiny purse so much, that I decided to make a card to match!  As long as the scraps are already on the table . . .

I added lots of layers to this card.  :)

I even pulled out my sewing machine to do a bit of stitching!

I cut the "it's your day" sentiment at 3.82 inches from the Birthday Bash cartridge.  Then I covered it with glossy accents and attached it to my card with dimensional adhesive. 

The black striped border is a piece of ribbon that I glued on and then folded under the edge of the patterned paper.  I built the top piece of this card before I adhered it to the card base.

The tag sentiment is from my Tiny Tags Stamp set and I tied it on with a bit of Honeydew Bakers Twine.

It is funny that there can be so many shades of black when it comes to picking paper! My Black patterned paper with the swirls actually looked slightly gray next to the black card stock, so I heat embossed the patterned paper with clear embossing powder.  This made it a dark black and shiny too!

I probably won't give these away together as a set, but liked the color combo.

Have a happy day!
