haute bag

Happy Saturday!  I'm happy that you stopped by.  I need to apologize for the lighting for this photo.  I am not at home.  I don't have my photo tent, or my lighting.  So I was left to own devices.  aka the camera on my phone.
Over @ Our Creative Corner there is a color challenge with an inspirational photo.  Here it is:

When I first saw this color challenge, I was totally stumped.  I originally over thought the whole process.  But then, I just looked through the papers I had on hand, and mixed and matched.  
This is what I created:

I purchased this template a few years ago.  I love how easy this paper hand bag was to put together.  I ended up making 4 of these paper hand bags for my table mates @ the Hen House Retreat.  So, it was only a perfect project for this week's challenge over @ OCC.  I used Nostalgia pattern paper to create this Haute Bag.  I used the distressed teal polka dot pattern paper for the hand bag.  I used soft suede card stock to create the trim pieces.  The mustard diamond pattern paper for the envelope is from the same line.  I created a small pocket on the inside of this bag with the dark pink pattern paper.  I had a several antique pearl brads to add some vintage charm.
I hope we have inspired you to play along with us @ OCC.  Thank you for stopping by.  Enjoy your weekend!
