Flap Fold Purse

I'm finally letting you all in on some awesome news about my dear friend Michelle Rodgers!!! She now has her own webstore Stamper's Dream!!! Woo-Hoo!! Ya gotta go check it out!! She has a huge variety of stamps, awesome dp's and wonderful accessories. She's offering some terrific blog candy on her blog too found HERE!

Ever have one of those days where nothing seems to flow? Yeah, me too. I actually started this flap fold card yesterday morning and didn't complete it until I was dead on my feet at 11:00 PM. So I'm finally getting it uploaded. I made this card for the Technique Challenge on Splitcoaststampers found HERE.
This fold reminded me of a little purse, thus the basicgrey ribbon at the top. tfl

The Hello flower is from a Hero Arts set called Framed Hello!! Check it out....it has a thank you sentiment and birthday sentiment too. I added the *friend* sentiment to the bottom. It's also by Hero Arts. It comes with a slew of sentiments all in one package, and all with awesome fonts found HERE. The dp is by Memory Box...it's from the Arial collection. I have all the Memory Box papers....LOVE THEM!!! I also embossed the top panel with cuttlebug's Bird's and Swirls folder. I thought the birds went perfectly with the dp!!

Images and dp can be found at Stamper's Dream
