handbag card

This month Penny Black and more are hosting an "All creatures great and small" challenge and this is my DT card  for that challenge. I used two different stamps. The small bird is stamped and cut from "good friends" and the cute girl is from the  " Betsy Bluebell " clear stamp set with the balloons removed. Sorry her face looks "sickly coloured" but the top of the bag cast a shadow when I photographed it and it looks like she is going to throw up.I used a large die cut shape and folded it in half to make the bag and creased a circle die in half and put it over the top of the bag. I used beads to make the handle and  used aqua markers to colour my images. I was really happy with the way it turned out and it  is perfect for my granddaughter.
I have entered it into a few challenges that are listed below.
