Birthday Purses

I love finding little treasures to alter and these are no exception! I found this pack of 10 purse note cards at the grocery store and altered 5 of them for a b-day party our youngest daughter attended. The b-day girl's favorite colors are lime green and pink so I worked really hard to pull those colors from the note cards.

What I find really funny about these cards is that I enjoyed altering the envelopes as much as anything! LOL

Afterwards, I thought I should have added a medium sized, beautiful lime green flower to the flap of the purse - where the small green flower is - but then hesitated as I know these are going to young girls and will most likely find their way to the trash can. :( So I wanted to keep them simple, yet personable!

Sorry for the major glare on this picture, the black card stock is very shiny so I had a hard time getting a good picture.

I added a strip of Dark Chocolate & Certainly Celery card stock to the envelopes, then stamped the faux ribbon in Certainly Celery from Stampendous.

Do you have plans this weekend? We've gone from 65 degree temps to 31 degrees and snow/sleet last night...it's still snowing today and hubby said the roads are very slick. Therefore, I'll do what everyone else would choose to do - I'll stay home and do laundry. Oh yeah baby, no one will have as much fun as me...NOT!

Hope your weekend is great; thanks for popping in, I love when you visit! Hugs, ~M.
