Pretty in Pink

I love it when I have a challenge to work on so this week I decided to try for the Circle Blog challenge. Any type of submission was accepted with a minimum of two cricut cuts, and PINK! Ruffles, swirls, and scallops and bling were the order of the day as well. For my submission I redid a purse I tried for a friends daughter this week. Hers was not so pink so I decided to go over the top.  Found this swirled pink lustrous paper in the DCWV Luxury stack and went to town. It cut really nicely from the Forever Young cricut cartridge and I decided to try the ruffles again.

This time I put a double row of sookwang tape at the edge of a plain white base cut from the same design. Just the back of the one section(make sure it's the one with the slit or you'll be cutting through it later) I pleated along the edge laying it along the tape and letting it show over the edge. Then taped all through the center to help it stay put. The effect was a pretty ruffle right at the edge of the purse, sandwiched between the papers. Next I added a triple scalloped circle tag with the same ribbon and then added a few sparkles in white on the handle and the center of the closure. I went together surprisingly easily and quickly! Think I'll put in some goodies for a dear friend who watched my B today! ;)
