Jaded Blossom February Challenge

Hello!  Today I am posting my entry into the Jaded Blossom February Challenge.  I created two purse treat holders with non-traditional Valentine's colors for my daughters.  I used Wedding Candies, I selected stamps that were relative to Valentine's, to decorate candies that I filled the purses with.  I used the Forever Young Cricut cartridge to cut out two different purse styles. 
The brown purse was embossed and then chalked before it was assembled.  I created flowers that coordinated with the patterns that were inset in the hearts of each purse. I also used the patterned papers to create brads that were used as centers for the larger flowers.  The flowers were cut from the Tattered Flowers Alterations dies by Tim Holtz.   The brown purse is for my oldest daughter, Ruby, and the blue purse is for Katherine. 
I am also submitting this into the Decorate to Celebrate Challenge @ .  Please by and check out all the neat projects the ladies at Decorate to Celebrate have going on.  I hope you liked the treat holders and thanks for stopping by.
