Here is a bright & cheery purse I made from snowman paper. Very simple purse – just cut the paper to fit the inserts! I added a charm made with jewelry supplies from Craft Fantastic and tied it to the handle with some pretty ribbon.

Purse from  Z Becky Brown.

MIX40 Winter

This is my card for the MIX 40 Challenge at Splitcoast.

This week’s challenge is from new hostess (and my chicken guru) Anna Wight. She has challenged us to use something sticky to adhere glitter.

My card uses glitter glue in gold for the background and then I added white acrylic paint to my die cuts and ground. I added liquid glue and added Sprinkles! glitter (the best glitter ever!). After the glitter was dry I added a wee little bit of white acrylic paint on top of some of the glitter.

Die cuts from Impression Obsession, papers from The Paper Loft.
