Inspired by a Lovely Purse

Happy Thursday, peeps!  And Happy February!  Wow, I am so excited to share some news with you today!  Laurel of Inspired By Challenges has re-started her challenges and has assembled an amazing design team, and asked me to be a part of it!  I love Laurel's fresh, clean and spunky style, and her challenges reflect that spirit, so it should be fun and I hope you'll play along.

For today's challenge, check out this fun little purse:

Cute, huh?!  I've been hoarding this be-spectacled paper from My Mind's Eye, and I think today is the day to break it out!  I've made some banners from the same pad, as well as some others; added a little trimmed-down notecard from SU that is ages old; did some stitching at the top of the banner, and added some gold hearts, gold sequins and a shabby organdy rose:

You can see the banners better from this angle:

And the sentiment, stamped in Strawberry Slush, is from an older Paper Pumpkin kit:

These colors are just so pretty together!  I hope you'll check out the Inspired By challenge blog to see the amazing samples the DT created...and share yours with us as well!  You will definitely be inspired by them!!

Congratulations, LeAnne! This card seems so different from your usual style and it is gorgeous. I covet the spectacle paper - I have just the stamps for it! I'd not seen this challenge before but have now added it to my list of places to check. Great work!

Well, I have to say I'm inspired by your card! Love all the DSPs you used and the layers are fabulous! The sentiment is just perfect too! Congrats on your new DT! Great pix of Cassidy and Dana too!

Congrats on the new Design Team. I agree with Jan this is different from your regular style and I love it! A lot of elements but pleasing to the eye.
