Here is the top of the container...
The card. Now I know my dogs won't really care to much about the card, but I figured it made the set, well a set! I cut out the ovals with my nestabilities and then propped the red one up on foam dots. You can't really see it very well but the collar, hair, shirt, shorts and shoes are all layered. The shirt is layer three times and the shorts, hair, shoes and collar are layered twice.

For this card, I wanted it to be more simplistic, so I didn't go crazy with all the little add ons. I really had to hold myself back...I had thought about adding some stickles here and there, some bling...but literally sat on my hands and talked myself out of it. I did decide to add some little buttons and some whiskers to Flopsey. The whiskers are just embroidery thread that I tied in a knot, colored the knot black with my copics and then let the ends unravel. I used Zip Dry to hold it on. I figured those added just the right amount with out going overboard!
You can see Flopsey's whiskers more clearly here...

This is a very simple project to make. Plus you can change it as often as you change purses!

The complete set...
Here is the giant Hershey bar...
I used MFT's "Spring Sprouts" by Sara Williams. Love this little set! I stamped all images in Momento Tuxedo Black and colored with my copics. I did put Shimmerz "Pixie Dust" on my clouds to give them a little sparkle. The paper is from K&Company and Hobby Lobby cardstock. I added a little ribbon...because...well you just gotta have ribbon! I hope they enjoy their little treats as much as I enjoyed making them!
