A Courtin' Purse for Miss Kitty

Well - I needed to catch up on several Split Coast challenges - so this little purse covers 4!

I used the colors for the color challenge to use celery green, teal and hunter green (the big button IS really hunter green but looks black in the pic!) - It was from my dear MIL's button box and has some decorative groves on the top half of it.

And I used the Grid Technique on the Bazzill card stock which was Charlene's (Lilluvsstampin) Doubledog Dare Challenge for us this week.

Going shopping makes me happy and that was Francie G's DDC challenge to us last week to make a card or project showing what makes you happy!

AND the Mudder's back (YAY!!) with her Tuesday Teapot challenge. We're all going to Dodge City to help Miss Kitty find a new man - I thought that she could use this pretty purse when she hits the streets for the nightlife - appropriately enough, the teal brad on the button is from the Urban Prairie set by Basic Grey!

I think Miss Kitty will put her little silver derringer in here in case she needs to ward off any unwelcome advances from certain gentlemen!! It will be cleverly concealed until she has need of it!

I found the tutorial for this cute top note purse here
