Happy Birthday!

Here is the birthday card that I made for Jessica's 12th birthday!

It's based on a challenge at Moxie Fab World. It's a bag lady challenge, and Cath posted photos of various bags, and letting them inspire me, I created the above card. Jessica LOVED it! I did a ton of sewing on the card! I added the ribbon to mimic the straps on the purse. The ribbon charm represents the purse's hardware. I think this is a fun card!

I had all of the scraps sitting on my desk, so I created a second one. I wanted to put the squares on an angle just like the bag! I love this one too!

This is the bag that inspired me! Fun challenge! Jessica also had a very fun birthday!! Where does the time go?

I hope you had a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
