Anthropologie Bag

I want to be buried at Anthropologie! Love this website that Stephanie chose for our Inspiration Challenge over on SCS this week! Earlier this summer in NYC I actually got to see it in person! So this took me a whole minute, maybe (!), to find something inspiring from there, must be a record!! I chose this cute cute cute Frill-Seeker Satchel! I went with more of a rust color on my card because I just couldn't match the bag color well with the brown CS I have. I ran a sheet of SU Rust Pattern Prints DP through the Finial Press Embossing folder, punched a MS Lacey Border onto two of the edges, shaped them just a bit and then layered them onto a Bazzil rust colored CS panel that I had stamped some leaves onto. Stitched along the top of the layers with rust colored hemp. Made some little tassles (took for-ev-er!!) out of the same hemp and attached them using a SU jumbo eyelet. Finished it off with a TG greeting from SU Holiday Best set. Not so easy peasy but still so very fun!! Thanks for the awesome website Steph! TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
