Created Byhand Challenge - Something You've Never Used or Done Before


I have seen these purses on various online sites for a while and have been intrigued by them. I swap artwork with a friend on a regular basis and am always looking for interesting and creative ideas. I purchased the bag and set to work creating 8 artist trading cards for it, 5 on the front and 3 on the back. I then used dark blue cardstock for the background that I stamped and embossed with silver. This is my entry for this week's Created ByHand challenge.
