Greeting Farm's Cheeky Beauty's purse card

This week at the Greeting Farm Challenge Blog, the Fresh Friday's challenge is to make a card with a fancy fold and to use an older image.  I chose to make a purse card using Cheeky Beauty.  I also decided to make an inside "pocket" and slipped in a small card/tag with the sentiment.  Now i am thinking this purse could be filled with goodies (jelly bellies, m & m's, any yummy candies) or the purse could hold some 2 x 3" photos.  It would be so cute on an office desk or to give someone in person...as a little "thank you" instead of a birthday.





What i did:
I used Sesame Street Seasons cricut cartridge and made the backpack i "hid" the slits for the backpack straps and also hid the backpack strips, but for a teacher it would be cute to include those.  I also then made 2 holes at the top of the purse for the handle and tied ribbon through the holes.  Next i stitched the gathered eyelet lace around the front of the purse flap.  Colored in my image of Cheeky Beauty, i cut her out, but before i cut her out i glued her to some paper and cut them out together...because my copic coloring shows through the back i wanted to hide it with a backing paper, because the back of her head shows in the back.  I added my embellishments (flowers, button w/a pearl and a ticket sentiment). For the inside pocket i made a small crayon box from Tags, bags boxes and more cartridge.

Copics used:
Skin- E50, 51. 02
Hair- E37, 29, 49
Outfit- RV10, 13, BG15
Stockings- E50 (shading), R0000, RV02 (highlight)
