Birthdays are like purses...

I am SOOO happy with how this card turned out!!! This is for my best friends birthday today. (DON"T LOOK AT THIS HANNAH!!! I'M WARNING YOU!!!) There is kind of a funny story behind it though - she LOVES purses, and kind of collects them. I, on the other hand, am really picky and boring with my purses! She is always trying to convince me to buy cute purses, and I have every excuse in the book for why I need to stick with the plain, black, boring, (dare I say ugly?) purse that I already have. I just don't care enough about it to spend the money on a new one, and I care more about how functional it is. Anyway, when I saw this quote somewhere recently, I knew I just HAD to make a card for her with it!

The purse stamp is from one of the Unity Grab bags I got a while back, and the sentiment is computer generated and curled a bit as I placed it on the card. I cut the card shape from A Child's Year by welding together a tag shape on my Gypsy. Inked the edges of everything, added some doodling, and finished with a bit of yarn tied in a bow.
