For a Jeweled Garden Party

It took me a little while to think this through and complete, but it is finally done.  I had always wanted to embellish something like a purse.  It was hard to find the right purse first of all.  This one came the closest to what I had in mind.  It is faux black leather and has a great surface.  Then, it was fun planning out what it would look like.  The things that sealed it for me what it should look like are the pieces of a necklace that I thought looked like clouds.  Then, I decided to have a garden full of glittering flowers below.  There is a bright yellow sun in the sky, a rhinestone butterfly, and some birds above a next full of blue eggs.  I've listed it in my Etsy shop if you'd like to see other pictures of it.

Hi Sweetie...
Absolutely breathtaking. I love it. The clouds, the bird, the sun and the flowers in the garden below. How absolutely gorgeous. I am clapping, clapping, clapping for a job well done.

So creative. Thank you for sharing. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Your purse is very creative. I love the bird and clouds and sparkly flowers...and especially the sun. I bet it was hard to part with.
I wanted to let you know I am having another GIVEAWAY and I'd love you to join in. Hope to here from you soon --- the giveaway ends the last day of June.
Blessings, L
