Today a new card challenge set by Design Team member Sue has gone live on Scrapology. As April's birthstone is the diamond Sue is challenging you to make a card featuring BLING.

For my card I choose some patterned paper from My Minds Eye and added lots of sparkling gems to it. 

I used a 5"x7" card base and added some black satin ribbon, a silk flower, a round cluster diamante buckle ribbon slider from Mei Flowers and a sentiment printed on acetate.

After making the card I felt inspired to make something else with the patterned paper so I made a little handbag which opens up to be used to hold a little gift. The bag was made from a folded 6" x 6" square of the paper. There are lots of instructions on the internet for making such a bag including this You Tube video.

I put some nail polish inside my handbag but you could also fill it with sweets, a lipstick or some others little gift.

I decorated the outside of the handbag with sparkling gems and a 'friends' charm hung on chain.

Pop over to Scrapology to see all the teams cards and to find out all about the challenge.
