Sentimental Sundays.....Shaped Card!!

Good morning-
It's Sunday and that means that it's time for another fantastic challenge over at Sentimental Sundays.....YEAH!!!!! 
This weeks challenge is:
Shaped Cards (with a sentiment)
(No square or rectangle)
Here is my take on this weeks challenge.  I made a purse card/gift holder. This is actually my first gift card holder!!!!!!  Wow....I really had to think about that for a minute.
Isn't it darling!!!!  I really like the way it came out.  It has a vintage chic approach to it!!
Supplies Used:
Cardstock: DCWV; Patterned Paper: Pink Paisley: Butterfly Garden (Flower Bloom);
Cricut Cartridge: Kate ABC's; Embosing Flolder: Sizzix (Regal Flourishes); Stamp: Whimsy Stamps (The Good Lfe Tickets)
Inks: VersaMagic (Sage and Gingerbread), VersaMark: Clear; Embossing Powder, Distress Ink: Antique Linen;  Stampendous:Detail Gold, Ranger: Clear;
Flower: Prima: Vintage Trinkets; Ribbon: Unknown; Brad: Recollection; Pearl String: unknown

Here is a close up of the pearly string, sentiment, brass flower and the glossy embossed card stock. 

And this is what the inside looks like:
My sister and I LOVE....LOVE....LOVE.....
ok, one more time.....LOVE
The Sound of Music and we were lucky enough to get tickets from our mom to see it at our local theatre.  Thank you mom!!!!
