INSPIRED BY A ... BOOK! Heart 2 Heart Challenge

This week's challenge at Heart 2 Heart is "Inspired by a ... Book!"  I chose The Secret Garden as my inspiration for this cute little purse.  While the outside of the purse looks like a beautiful blooming garden (thanks to the new Brushed CTMH papers), the inside holds a secret.

It's actually a holder for a set of cards!
I have to give inspirational credit to the ladies who originally designed this purse - Linda Bradbury
 and Linel Mehus over at ClassicExpressions.org  I tweeked the design a bit to make it work for me. 

Here's a list of what I used to complete this project.  All materials are from CTMH:
A Budding Friendship D1602 - floral images
Seaside Greetings D1609 - birthday & congratulations sentiments
Big Hug D1584 - just because sentiment
Casual Expressions D1525 - thinking of you sentiment
White Daisy, Pixie and Black cardstock
Brushed background paper X7190B
Canary, Pixie, Hollyhock, Sweet Leaf, Pear and Black
Floral embossing folder Z1994
Small Sparkles Clear Flourishes Z1812
Brushed Assortment Z3013 - metal flowers
White Daisy Grossgrain Ribbon (retired)
Check out the other projects over at the Heart 2 Heart challenge blog that are inspired by books!
And watch for information coming about the workshop so you can make this set yourself.
