Vintage Gift Card Purse

Hello everyone... I have a creation that I would like to share with you today and this one is for La La Land Challenge and Peachy Keen Stamp Challenge. The theme for La La Land is to create a gift card holder and the theme for Peachy Keen is something Vintage. I made this cute little purse out of Vintage looking papers from my stash and one of my Fiskars shape templates. One of these days I will come up with a tutorial for this creation but there are similar ones on the Internet for you to view. I cut out my shapes and assembled my gift card holder. On the outside I placed a Vintage looking metal butterfly to close my purse. I used this butterfly as my inspiration. I also added two eyelets to the top  of the purse and then added some ribbon for the handle. On the inside I used my Fiskars shape template folded in half to hold my gift card. I found these beautiful Vintage butterflies on the Internet and stamped my sentiment on card stock and more Vintage papers. To close my purse I added round velcro dots. So, what do you think?
