IHP Challenge Day - Inspired by Fashion

Once again, it is time for the i{heart}papers team to have a little fun.  This month our challenge is to be inspired by fashion.  I found this purse on Etsy and thought I'd use it as my inspiration piece ~ HERE'S the link.

My purse isn't quite as functional, but it does hold some pretty post card notes & matching envelopes.

I used the Quiet Essence stamp set from Unity Stamp Co along with pattern paper from SEI Claire Collection with the pretty Claire matching button for the detailed closure.

Easy-peasy matching postcard notes with coordinating envelopes complete the gift set.

For the base of the purse, I used a clear card box and cut the side off to hold the postcard notes. 

I can't wait to see what all the other girls were inspired to make this week ~ go hop around and see what they came up with.
