Challenge at BBTB2

Boy, it seems like forever that I've been able to participate in a Cricut based challenge! I'm entering this project at Bitten by the Bug 2's purse challenge-

The purse is actually made from Accent Essentials. I cut two of these shapes, folding down the upper fourth for the purse. On the second shape I cut off the top, and sewed the edges together so the purse can hold a gift card. The handle is some silver ball trim (Christmas?) I've had in my shiny stuff drawer. I did put velcro on the purse to hold it together. Sentiment from Avery Elle, shiny flower from Michaels.

Thanks for stopping by!
