Handbag's on SALE!!

who wouldn't love to find a shop with handbags on sale!!! I know I would!!
This is a version of a 'market' card, which we made yesterday at class. These are fabulous cards as you can theme them to any subject - flowers, ice creams, cakes, cupcakes, balloons, cafe, wine, books, the list goes on!
I have used Basic Black and Gold metallic cardstock, along with Very Vanilla and Real Red. The red handbag has clear embossing on it to create the 'leather' look, the middle bag is also embossed this time with black - using the big heart from the 'Always' stamp set. Those bags are shaped using punches, the black bag is created with the crimper and the scallop edged punch. A few brad and the bags are done. The word 'specials' is from the Taking Care of Business' set, I just hand wrote the 's' on the end. The sentiment is from the awesome 'Heard from the Heart' set in the Autumn-Winter mini catalogue.
I first saw these cards on a Stampin' Up! demo website by Karen Thomas who said she got the idea from Bev at http://stampinalldaywithbev.blogspot.com/2009/03/flower-shop-card.html and then on Lorri’s site http://stampingaddict.blogspot.com/2010/05/may-stamp-club-projects.html. So go and check them out!
