BIC30 & WSC64 *For You*

Happy Tuesday again!!!! I still can't believe it's Tuesday again....

Today Beate is featuring this fun purse called *Bella Bag*(you can actually buy it right here) for the *BIC30*.
When I saw the purse I knew I wanted to use my poor neglected *Boho Backgrounds* Set!!!

I know that the purse color is more of a *Turquoise* - unfortunately I didn't have enough *Tempting Turquoise* CS to include in my project!!! That's why I had to replace it with *Bashful Blue....Hope you don't mind?!?

Well - here is my take on the purse.......
These are the colors I have chosen -
Kraft, So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Old Olive and Whisper White.

For the base of the card and bag I used Textured Whisper White CS. The bottom scalloped stripe on the bag is from the Old Olive Prints
DP.

For my card I chose Beate's WSC64. I thought the Sketch was perfect to show off the *Boho Backgrounds* Medallion.

For the bag I followed the instructions from Diana Gibbs. If you have not made one of these cute little bags - you should definitely give it a try!!!!
The only thing that I did differently is I extended my bag to a 7" x 11" height. Diana has hers shown at 5 1/2" x 11". I guess you can adjust it to any height you need for your project.....
All the *Medallions* were inked in Versamark and then embossed with Basic Black EP. I stamped and embossed the *Medallions* double and then punched out the second ones with the 1 3/8"Circle Punch. Then I raised them with Stampin Dimensionals and placed a Silver Eyelet (Memory Keepers) and a Blue Rhinestone Brad in the center. Next I layered the whole image onto So Saffron and Old Olive CS. This panel was also raised with Stampin Dimensionals.
Hope you like my little creations and you will find some time to play along???Don't forget to check the rest of Beate's talented ladies Charmaine Ikach, Danielle Lounds, Dawn McVey, Jennifer Buck and Susan Roberts.
Have a great day ~TFL~
