Vintage handbag Card

Hi Friends, Hope you are all having a lovely weekend. I'm off out to work within the next hour so this will be my one and only post for today. This week has been really traumatic for me, I thought the week previous was bad but this one just gone takes the biscuit. I won't go into boring details but it involved a lot of worry. Anyway I'm glad I can still catch an hour or so of crafting and this little handbag is the result of my snatched hour. I bought the template a couple of weeks ago and I thought this style would suit my very sophisticated 15yr old Niece. I've used ivory for the skin tones, I don't think anyone had much colour back then.

It is for 3 challenges this week over at
1. Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge: The colour scheme this week is Orange, Blue & Purple, the theme is Back to the 80's with a twist and the song I chose was Girls on Film.
2. Our Creative Corner Challenge: The them this week is Vintage, so I thought my little stamp of the Roaring 30's and the shape of the bag is quite vintage.
3. Charisma Cardz Challenge: This week is no Backing paper. I have used Card stock for the handle and the shaped front, but no paper anywhere on my card.

I hope you all have a lovely evening and I'll see you all Tomorrow.
