Happy Monday everyone!!  I hope you all had a great weekend! I know I sure did!!  The weather was gorgeous!!

Today I would like to share a project I created for this week's Product Spotlight at Stamp and Create this week.  Recently Lacey received a new line of S.W.A.L.K. images.  They are just darling!!  This week all S.W.A.L.K. images will be 25% off!!

I created this Gift tag purse using SWA:LK Little Madam.  I also used Kaiser craft snow pearls, Spellbinders Edge Frame and May Arts mauve silk ribbon available at the Stamp and Create store.

I colored her with copics.  I used several punches for my creation On the top to created the scalloped opening (SU Oval Scallop and regular oval from SU), the MS Butterfly border punch for the butterflies, and three punches from SU for the tag.  The dp is SU Bella rose which I embossed with Swiss Dots.  The shape is created with the Nestabilies Classic Scalloped frame.

For more inspiration using the Stamp and Create Product Spotlight, please visit: Joy, Lacey, Heidi, Vicky and  Jeanette.
