DCM Dare - Charity begins at Home & HS:MS Dog

OK, here's this weeks dare:Let's go Charity shoppingor Op shopping (as we call it in Australia)
I DARE you to visit your local Charity Shop & make someone else's

This is just my kind of challenge, so off I went to the Marie Curie Shop and found this handbag for £2.99. It was a bit embarrassing because the woman at the till was going on about how she had had her eye on the bag since it came in but had nothing to wear with it. How nice for a wedding she said - I didn't have the heart to tell her I planned to pick it to bits and make a card with it for an internet dare!

I managed to get the flower, a short peach coloured zip and the acrylic handles out of my bargain bag - these handles cost about £5-6 new.

So here is my card, the papers are K&Co and the rest of the stuff is from my stash, including a little embossed sentiment tag made with my Cuttlebug. The yellow you see is the wall, the inside of the card is covered with paper to match the outside, so you can see it behind the fold back IYSWIM.
