HIMCR #57 Colors Challenge

The kids went to their last camp of the summer this week and started the last session of swim lesson still next summer.  They are going to take a break from swim lesson during the school year.  Today we have the last day of their camp and a BBQ afterwards.  I did mange to squeeze in a little bit of crafting and some cleaining in between taking the kids and their friends to camp. 

This week at HIMCR is the Color Challenge.  Our colors are Sunset (orange), Crystal Blue (sea blue), and Olive (green).   I thought the colors would make a cute little purse card I saw the other day to cut out on the Silhouette. 
My green and blue paper are from my scrap box.  I know the green is from DCVW but I'm not sure on the blue cards stock.  I could not find the right shade of orange.  So I cut out my flower from the Creative Memories Be Young Cartridge and it cut from white card stock and then I rub my CTHM Sunset ink pad over the flower.  I decided the blue cardstock need just a little something else.  I looked through my embossing folders and the Stylized Flowers one look like a great folder for this little purse.  Then I added some velcro to hold the flap down and little blue button to the flower. 

The kids are so excited to send this to Grandma for her birthday!

  5. Oh I just love your cute purse with its embossing and flower. The handle is unique (to me).
    Sounds like you've had an incredibly busy summer. Glad you found some time to play with us at Simply Create Too and in our "anything goes" challenge.
