CAS29 - Anthropologie Inspiration

(Note - sorry for the horrible photo - yikes!) Jen gave a really hard challenge 29 over on the CAS challenge thread. She asked us to go to a store called Anthropologie and specifically into the Shoes and Bags section and use an image as inspiration. At first I thought there was no way I was going to be able to come up with something...but then I saw THIS PURSE and my creative brain kicked into gear and I created this!! Yes, that is real leather!! The black is from an old wallet my hubby was going to throw away (can you imagine!!) and the brown leather is from an old purse I used to tote around with me. Kept them both because I knew they would come in hand some day!! Supplies: Stamps - Fun with Shapes (again, I've been using this a lot lately, Stampin' Up! retired); Ink - Black; Paper - Really Rust (Stampin' Up!); Other - leather from old purses and wallets, corner rounder. Enjoy your day!! Donelda

Wow. This is a clean looking card for sure. What great work, adding the leather on there.
I am in awe of the craft storage system you must have in place to be able to store all these items AND then remember to use them.
