For a Fabulous "Purse'n"

I have a dear friend who always has amazing purses. She even gave me a fuchsia pink purse one time that has lasted forever. I immediately thought of her when I saw this new stamp set, Purse Parfait, from Doodle Pantry. I knew it was perfect for her. Here's the card I made and the stamp set.  I used a monochromatic color scheme with tints and shades of red and pink which always seem to be her favorite colors. I changed the colors of the purse and papers using Photoshop features - Hue and Saturation and Color Balance. I added red and pink sparkles and glitter buttons for accents. My new chevron embossing folder from CTMH makes a deep impression.

I used this lovely sketch from Sketch Saturday this week:
