Cat handbag

Hi all,finally I can use blogger to post my card .Had fun making this card, hope you like it :)
I love how it turned out.
I have used green card stock for the handbag .Penny Black stamps 4032J brimming with love,30-027 purrfect day. Designers papers are from Basic Grey-June Bug Collection, Love the red, white and black plaid design,have stamped kitty on the yellow (circle die cut)DP from June Bug and painted him.I have paper piece the hearts and handle of the mug.The image is matted on a polka dotted scallop paper.I have distress the edgers of the paper,and used distress inks to distress the whole bag.Have added a double bow ribbon and added white cherry blossom, 2 roses (wild orchid crafts)Have added faux stitching on the DP.Made a matching handmade flower to add on the flap(the brad is felted).The handle of the bag is made of a yellow ribbon,have added a dangling red heart and a charm.
Embellished with lots of clear and red gems.

Would like to send this in for these wonderful Challenges
Penny Black Allsorts -May Challenge and DT call- Shape Up

Basic Grey - #42 Be Charming
Wee Memories - CRAFTS 
 Colours red,yellow, green,black and white , yellow Ribbon, Acrylic red heart,Floral handmade flower,rosesand cherry blossoms,Stamps in side and cover

I have attached velcro to the flap to hold the handbag in place.When you open it you will see that , I have stamped a cute cat image and a sentiment.Have added a strip of the leftover DP and added some punched hearts too.At the bottom is a compact mirror,held on with 2 triangles , and 3 hearts.

A lady's handbag should have a compact mirror,so I made one using a scallop circle and
 a cut out heart(from a DP)and added lots of gems.You can write a message or have a picture in it.

Thanks for popping over with lots of wonderful comments.
Have a fun filled wonderful weekend!
