I have been saving this shopping bag from Coldwater Creek because I think it is so pretty and I was inspired to create a look alike card. It was fun to make as emboss resist is one of my favorite techniques. I wanted to have more and wider layers around it but I didn't plan ahead for the size of the card. It is a 6" card, as big as I can make, and I didn't want to cut off any of my work to get more layers. Thanks for looking.

Oh, Becky, I could never do this with all those techniques! This is absolutely drop dead gorgeous, and I swear it looks just like the bag - oh, how terrific is that. You might want to make another and send to coldwater creek! They might really be interested in your card for their extra-special customers! It's totally awesome. Plus, it's the perfect size!
