Boy, this was a challenge! This card is for week 4 of Theresa's Designer Handbag Inspiration Challenge.

I have black glossy paper in my stash, so I decided to use the details of the Ralph Lauren handbag as my inspiration. This photo doesn't capture the glossy paper...ugh!

Earlier this Summer, I bought some Making Memories felt pieces. Included were sunglasses. I tried turning them from turquoise to black, but it didn't work. I traced them on glossy paper instead and cut the shape out.

Card Ingredients

Stamps: A Little Love
Paper: Basic Black, yellow scrap paper, Black Glossy (Only the Best), Gold Foil (Only the Best)
Ink: StazOn Jet Black
Punches: yellow ribbon (Taylored Expressions), corner rounder, slit punch, small and large tag punches, 3/4" circle punch
Other: gold eyelet & large rhinestone brad (Making Memories), foam tape, Stickles, Sakura gold gel pen, gold thread, oval Coluzzle, paper piercer, paper piercing template
