Coach inspired handbag?!

Oh my! Happy Saturday!!! gosh i've missed you all the last couple of days... i ran out of mojo and just didn't have anything in me to create... but behold i'm back!!! haha! caught up on some much needed rest and now i'm ready to go go go.... Hope you all have been well!! haven't visited you all in a long time, i'm looking forward to see what you've been up to...

my project here today is for La La Land Challenge #23 - Gift Card Holder.... i haven't really done any so this was fun in the making... I found a tutorial on the net for a simple gift card holder/card (sorry forgot to save the site) and then i was looking for one of my gift cards to put inside for pictures... so i found a Coach giftcard that i received for Christmas and that inspired me to change up my project and turn it into a little handbag/card/gift card holder.... see!!
i thought this DP by American Crafts was the perfect to case a patterned "Coach" bag.. or any designer bag actually.... used some ribbon as handles and placed a strip of matching DP (from the inside) as a closure flap that i then covered up with a cutout of one of the Miss Dressy Anya girls... this stamp can be bought on the TGF website... then i noticed that some designer bags have their logo somewhere on the front of the bag so i tried to case that with the Love sentiment from the I Heart set that you can get from LPS....
here's the inside... the DP is again from American crafts... do you spy the Coach logo?! hehehe! haven't decided what i want to buy with it yet... i think i have to save a little bit more, okay a lot more, for the bag i've had my eyes on... ;D
i'm gonna switch out the gift card for another one, probably for a sweet treat and give this cutie to DD#1's teacher... i'm pretty happy with the way this came out and i hope you like it too!!! Thanks for coming by to share a few minutes with me... and thank you so very much for all your support and comments on my creations and random sharings... they mean so much to me and really keep me going.... Happy everything friends!!!!
