Great tutorial in the Inkling this week for purse papers. I cut the size down to 4 1/4 x 2 1/2" folded over. My purse is so full of junk now that there wasn't any room for the big one. Yikes! On the antique one I used a folder from the new Anna Griffin series and a die-cut label from Joy Crafts with a few gems from my stash. The challenge for WT418 was to get knotty so I added a tied ribbon. The green one uses a die-cut and label from cuttlebug (some of the first ones that began my addiction!) and a gem from the stash. Both greetings are hand written.

Haven't you got gorgeous hand-writing, Sue!! I love the way the paper ribbon runs through the slots on the right-hand one, but (not just because it has a knot :D) I have a sneaking preference for the one on the left - love that embossing!
I just upgraded to a smaller purse (first time I've ever bought one just because I loved it and not because my old one had died!) so I've had to ruthlessly get rid of some of the stuff that has accumulated over the years.

I envy that gorgeous handwriting. I have to type to get my good looking. And I don't think one of your cards could ever NOT pass muster. These are gorgeous. The jewels really hit the spot and I like your idea of the smaller cards.
