The challenge for Bitten By The Bug 2 this week is a purse.  My brother's wife is having a birthday this week and thought that this card would be perfect for her.  It was fun to make and took a little customizing.

I used Suburbia for the girl and Kate's A B Cs for the purse.  I got both from Cricut Design and cut them out on my Cricut Explore.  I cut one figure of the girl out of black and then the second figure with collar and button holes out of black.  I cut off the arms, legs and head from second figure, then glued a small piece of white under the button holes.  I cut the collar  from that and cut by hand out of white.  For the purse and flowers, I used light and dark pink, for the leaves I used light green.   The words "Stepping Out On Your Special Day"  I used the text from Cricut Design.  For "Happy Birthday" I used the stamp set Joyous Birthday Occasions in black ink.  Most of the paper and the ink and stamp were Close To My Heart purchased from Katie's Corner.
