Any Occasion - CTO Challenge #23

Its time for another new challenge at Celebrate the Occasion.  It's team #1's turn this week and the theme is
"Any Occasion" but it must be blue and white.  So this is the project I came up with.
                                                                                           

 I  came across a video from Theresa at Scrappers Anonymous on how to make your own flowers so I thought I would give it a try.  The result was fantastic, it was very simple and they turned out beautiful.  Can you tell I'm pretty impressed with myself?  Theresa did a great  how-to video on this so go check it out.

This purse is cut  from  the Forever Young cart and I did  fit-to-page on a 12x12. When put together the purse stands 3.5 in., perfect for a giftcard, earrings, nail supplies, etc. and can be used for many occasions.
Other supplies I used were  --  DCWV Cardstock
                                                White ribbon from my stash
                                                 Fiskars gift tag squeeze punch 
                                                 I-rock
                                                 MS Embossing powder
                                                 Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist
                                                 Stampin Up ink
Thanks for looking, now head back to CTO and see what the rest of  the DT has created and be inspired.  We woiuld  love  for you to come join in on the fun!!
