Here is my card for today's inspiration challenge. Make a card inspired by a beautiful Neiman Marcus Handbag......
Here is my story:
1. The high point of making this card was knowing that when I pierced every single row of little holes in this cardstock, they did not have to be prefectly straight! Whoo Hoo!
2. The low point of making this card was not having a simple large gold ring. I spent 30 minutes looking in every junk drawer in my house and when I told my husband I was gonna call Brenda my neighbor because she has way more junk drawers than me....he said...Cindy, it is 5:30 in the morning...go to plan B!
3. If you really like this card...click on the Neiman Marcus link in the original challenge thread and you can purchase it. It is for sale at the bargain price of $1,499.99. A marketing/advertising expert once told me that things sell better when they are prices with nines....or was it fives....anyway if it makes you feel better, you can pay $1,495.95.
4. My thinking is that if you are gonna pay $3,000 for a purse...what you put in it (this card) should be worth at least half that price!
Have fun shopping!

Wow, you and Vicky amaze me. Up so early and you are tediously piercing holes in paper with a sharp object too! Both of you deserve outstanding awards for your labors and your creation is the loveliest!!!

This is so beautiful. You did such a fabulous job on it. Love the pink.
You may need help keeping up with the demand of your cards in the purses. Let me know - the babies and I can pack the car in 30 minutes. Once the babies are in-it is packed. :) Oh, Da man has to stay home.

This is wonderful. I can't believe you pierced all those holes - that alone is worth your price tag, lol! Good thing your hubby was around to get you thinkin Plan B (though if your neighbor is a stamper, I'm sure she would have understood, lol). Thank you for playing!
