Today we are featuring the "Happy Pansies" stamp set:

For this month's blog hop, I have decided not to make any standard-sized cards.  Today, I made a purse-shaped card using an Accucut die and Accucut die cutter.  I used the "Happy Pansies" set to stamp with Versamark and emboss with black embossing powder.  I colored in the flowers and ladybug with Copic markers.  I completed the outside of the card by adding a large gem sticker from Jolee's.  Because of the beauty of the flower stamp and the font on the sentiment, I did not think that the card needed anything else.

Here's the inside of the purse card.  I stamped the single pansy several times with tone-on-tone pink.  I finished it off with another sentiment.  Whether you color the flowers in or not, the flowers look equally elegant.
