Flowers, Felt and Bling

It's been a while since I made a shaped handbag card and I really don't know why I don't use it more often! I've used a template that I've had for ages and I don't know where I got it from and the papers are an old Clare Curd Signature Range 12x12 stack which I've glittered the edges of and some of the flower patterns too.

I've made the handle from wire - curled it around a pencil and then added seed beads to it. The flowers I found in my stash and I cut the felt ones with a Cuttlebug die. The charm is made from a really cheap 'silver' necklace I bought in the poundshop and took off all the dangly bits and added seed beads to the wire.

Makes a nice change from Christmas cards too!
