Gotta love a gorgeous bag!

...even if it's a lunch bag. This card is for the Inspiration Challenge 200 ~ Kir DeVries on Splitcoast (IC200). We were asked to check out the wonderful things online at Kir DeVries and find inspiration. I found enough inspiration to keep me stamping for months so I'll let you know when I post another Kir DeVries-inspired project (where did that name come from anyway?). Today it's the Hadaki Lunch Pod in Liquorice that had me. The colour scheme--black, cream and a bronze-brownish colour--texture and simplicity.

I stamped the background (it's not SU's Linen background stamp but something similar) in Antique Linen ink on PTI rustic white cardstock, then stamped my SU pretty petals background in black. The sentiment was done on the computer and then edged in Brillance Coffee Bean and stitched in black thread. Instead of using black cardstock to mat the main panel, I sewed black piping to the edges. I turned the card into a pocket and created the 'purse handle' with oval nestabilities and stitching.

Thanks for looking!
