Hand Stamped Sentiments #113 - All About Mom

This week it's All About Mom over at Hand Stamped Sentiments and I 'clearly' missed reading the Mama memo, oops! Although I did use the flower from the Messages For Mom Stamp Set, so I was at least on the right track.

I've been wanting to give this cute little purse die a try and put together this little Birthday set. I started out with the colors over at The Paper Players, Not Quite Navy, Pool Party and Certainly Celery. 

My flowers were colored with a multitude of markers and then accented with a center pearl. Instead of the handle on the purse, I just tied the seam binding around and tied a bow on top. 

Come link up your Mother's Day projects and see what the lovely design team has whipped up this week!

Another super cute gift set! I love how you cut out the floral image and used it on your card and little purse. I also like your fresh color combo. What a wonderful duo!

GORGEOUS job Dawn! I love that colour combo:) You are so patient... I never use images like the flowers b/c I'm too lazy to colour:) I love the little purse... perfect touch!
