Sister's Purse Color Challenge #18

This is a beauty! Becky picked out this weeks entry for our weekly "Sister's Purse Color Challenge" and I think that it is a cutie. This Offhand Designs Sabrina bag can be found in many different colors. I just happened to like this one. You can find all the details on or HERE.  Right now it's on sale for 20% off.

Color to be used this week:
Sahara Sand and Tempting Turquiose

You can add a neutral if you like, 
but it's not necessary.

Becky made this cute little scallop birthday card for the challenge when she was visiting last week. I accused her of copying my design and she just laughed. She said that she stamped more on the background and used a different stamp for the focal point - so it wasn't copied, just inspired. I guess we all are guilty of using someone cards for inspiration. You can find it on SCS - HERE.

Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes
Paper: Tempting Turquoise
Inks: Basic Black
Accessories: Scallop Die, Corner Rounder Punch and Adhesive

So do you see what I was talking about with the "copying" that was done. I am glad that I can inspire her work. We have so much fun with this challenge and it was fun to actually do it together this time. 

For my card, I went with a normal sized card and stamped the background with those cute little blowers from the Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set. I stamped the ballon on Whisper White, cut it out, glued it to the Sahara Sand and then added Crystal Effects to give it the shine like balloons have. I LOVE the way it turned out. You can find my "Birthday Balloon" card on SCS - HERE.

 Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Sahara Sand and Whisper White
Inks: Basic Black and Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Dimensionals and adhesive
