Handbag card

I was looking through a box of card blanks and came across a couple of handbag cards that I've had for longer than I can remember, so I decided to make something with one of them.

The challenge for this week's Going grey with Scrap-Creations is to 'decorate the inside of your card. I thought I would make the card so that it can be turned either way, so it's just one card, but can be used a couple of different ways.

Cards und more 35 is looking for cards that are not square, so I'm linking for that, also for Mami doodles 32: shaped card, and 365 cards day 185: so unusual.

I used loads of sparkly gems on both sides of the card, so this is for Oldie but a goodie 26 - the old stamp is the Basic Grey journaling one that I thought would be a good place to write in. I coloured this with copic sugared almond pink for Copic creations 57: pretty in pink - and for iCopic 46: glitter (bling).

The spotty paper is English Paper Company Ladies of leisure, but all the other papers are Basic Grey - wisteria and sultry and, of course, the stamp is BG too - this is suitable for a celebration birthday, so I'm linking for Basic Grey 52.

This is the same card, just folded different ways:

This is also for:

The crazy challenge 83: spots and stripes
Our daily bread 75: spots or stripes
Art impressions 30: lots of dots
Truly scrumptious 64: rocked up pink
Pile it on 36: B for bling
Scrappy frogs: time for some bling
Creative card crew: anything goes
The paper shelter 29: anything goes
Simon says: anything goes
Our craft lounge 81: anything goes
Crafty boots: anything goes
Woodware USA 42: anything goes
Crafting when we can 1: do it your own way
