Wedding purse

 I made this adorable little purse as a greeting for a 'retro'-wedding. Kinda 1950's feeling to it, no? Atleast that was my intention. :) I used the same template (najaa, it's really just in my head and not a template at all, but still..) as in the Birthday bag post, wich you'll find here if you're a curious person like me. ;) They are even both red. Haha :)
 Polka dots all over! Both design paper and 'handles' are speckled with those super duper cute tiny dots. [What's up with that anyway? Howcome dots evenly spread on a paper is soooo cute?? hmm..]
The card base again is cardstock, this time soft shimmering white, edges inked in brown. On the raspberry-red dottypaper I inked in brown and sew along the edges using a golden brown thread. Lace and ball fringe match the handles/ribbon nicely. Notice the heartshaped paper clip I used for a lock. 

 The key to my heart...

 Paper roses, my new absolute fave when it comes to embellishment! :) They are just adorably cute, and amazingly easy to make. Love it!

 For the inside, I used a rose patterned paper in pink and green. It's no perfect match to the cover, but it's not an absolute must to have the lining fit the outside of a purse. ;)
I stamped various hearts along the side and two rings to the top, added the greeting and a few extra decorations, and I'm done.

 A small wedding couple in the corner too...

These are the front and back of the circle on the inside. Some stitching here too, every part of the card  is stitched actually.

 The back, kept simple as always. :)

 Just a tiny little luggage label for that extra something. I'm a sucker for details. :)

I just can't resist entering in a few blog challenges too, it's a great source of inspiration and also they always leave the sweetest comments. Haha ;)
