What say’s the 1950’s more than a pink poodle? I decided to make a purse with oodles of pink poodles! I used 659509 Sizzix Originals Poodle and a purse from Z Becky Brown.

I die cut the 659509 Sizzix Originals Poodle (X6!)with my Big Shot.

I sponged the edges with brown ink and then added Polar White Flower Soft.

Add two poodles top the front and back purse panels and one on each side.

Insert panels in the purse… cute huh?
