Purse and Matching Card

I made this project for a couple of challenges...Bitten by The Bug 2 (Dimensional 6 Petal Flower) and The Cuttlebug Spot (Make A Box And Something To Place In It).

Here is my project:

Finished Purse: 1 1/2" x 4" x 5 1/2" (to the top of the handle)
Finished Card: 2 1/2" x 3"

Cardstock: Embossed Teal, White and Light Green
Cricut Cartridge Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Purse 2, page 118 (Base)
Cricut Cartridge Forever Young Flower 10, page 73 (Base, Shift, Layer Base and Layer Shift)
White Ribbon
Teal Pigment Ink
Queen and Co Pearls, Teal 2 Large, 2 Medium and 4 Small
Velcro (For Purse Closure)
Mounting Tape

Bitten By the Bug 2 had asked to use the 6 petal flower in the Bloom Cartridge; however, I do not own that cartridge. I was able to find a six petal flower in the Forever Young Cartridge and used that instead. The edges of the white flowers are curled up (it's hard to see in the photo). The purse can hold the card and a gift card or other small gift or candy. I didn't finish the inside of the card, as I'm not sure who I will give it to yet. I could use it for a birthday or for Mother's Day. I really like the way this project came out. What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by...
