I cut my insert panels for my purse and added a scalloped border and the phrases. I die cut and embossed the butterfly and then added ink to the raised areas of the embossing with a blender pen.

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?
