I free-handed this purse card design for Cathy's fantastic challenge to "Shape Up"; create a shaped card.
I created the purse card base and handles with Marina Mist card stock. I used Stampin' Up!'s lovely retired Paisley Petals DSP on the front and back of the card base. I made the top flap on the purse card with the same DSP, using an IO frame die (sorry, I cannot find the name of the die). I alternated two designs from the DSP on the flap and added that on a piece of Old Olive card stock. I attached the flap to the card base with foam tape.
I created a Tangerine Tango rose with a Swarovski Crystal in the center and attached it to the purse flap. Using an ODBD oval die, I cut out two ovals to which I added the sentiment and two Swarovski Crystals.
The purse card folds like a regular card and there is plenty of room on the inside for a personal message. The card measures 7" x 5-1/2".
Thanks so much for viewing and commenting!

Wow, wow, wow!!!! Bev this is pure over-the-top fabulousness (if that isn't a word, then it should be). Just when I thought this couldn't get any more special, I read your description and discovered YOU hand crafted this design AND there's a Swarovski Crystal on it. Dont sell out to the Kardashians, I am thinking retro Gucci.....
Don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.

WOW...you free-handed this purse. I'm impressed. It is lovely, You even took care in placing the DP so that the flue flower was front and center. It is easy to tell a LOT of work went into this creation, Bev.
