A paper purse for Mother's Day

My Mom will be receiving this paper purse for Mother's Day and I know she will love it.  Well, what Mom doesn't love a fun purse.  This idea was born from a digital stamp set from Doodle Pantry.  The set is called Purse Parfait.  I enlarged the purse to 5.5 inches high and 6 inches wide.  I then printed the purse on 5 different papers then I began cutting.  This thing is a cutie and I know it will sit on her dresser. =) 
This is the back of the purse.  It has a pocket with a gift card to her favorite store to shop.  Now she gets a fun purse and gets to go shopping with her purse. =) 
I would like to submit this project into these challenges:
2 Cute Ink Challenge - Mother's Day

Make My Monday - Purple and green
The Paper Players - Mother's Day
The Squirrel and The Fox - Mother's Day

Cute idea. Funny - I made one of these purse cards yesterday. Mine is double sided folded along the bottom. Thinking about giving it to my mom. (great minds think alike)
