Even if I say so myself.....

...I'm quite pleased with how this card turned out! I had a nightmare of a time making it - stamped the image at least 5 times before I was happy with it. Once again I've used an iris folding stamp from Personal Impressions but I masked off the handle. Once I'd completed the iris folding I made a handle by threading cordinating beads onto wire. The wire was then pushed through the back of the card and taped down. The image was then mounted onto a backing paper is from Sharon Duncan's Embossibilities CD - Elegance. I like the way the border frames the image. I finished the card with a textured BP from my stash, some gems and card candi.



The card is for this week's CD Sunday Challenge - Handbags.
