Tote with Notecards using EB Images!!

Elisabeth Bell has started a NEW monthly challenge Blog~~~Called Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge Blog !!!!  YEAH!!!! Yippee!!! Hoorahhh!!!    I Just love her artistic talent--thanks Hun!!!
Check it out HERE!!!

The First challenge is to make a Special Tote or Box with 3x3 notecards using any EB images!!!
A while back I found this tutorial by Leigh O'Brien~~ Totally Totebag and it was just waiting for the right moment for me to create with it----soooooo........the moment has arrived...........this is my beauty :D
This little TOTE stores 4 notecards :)
Fancied up with EB image~~Emma!!  She is a doll~~she so reminds me of my daughter Kim at that age~~Love ya Kim!!!  Emma was colored with copics, spica gold pen and alittle Kiwi viva for her ankle jewelry.  I cut her out and Popped her up with foam tape
Shows dimensions. All edges were inked with TH walnut stain. The front, back and side panels were stamped.

View from above. You can really see the cute little pumpkin as well as the notecards :D

Back view~~added a keyhole brad for fashion :)  
Here you can see the Magnolia lace doohickey trim which was inked and Glimmer misted for shine!
This adorable wee pumpkin had it's edges inked before assembling and then glitzed with Tsukineko sparkle shimmer spritz before attaching to tote. Isn't it the Cutest!!!!

Close up Of Little Emma with her kitty :) Added gold AtYou Spica to the ribbon on blouse, stripes on the basket and also the straps on her flip flops. Viva Decor Kiwi pearl pen accents her ankle bracelet.

The collection!!!!

Now alittle more detail of each notecard~~hang in there~~ you know me I just love pics ;)
Meet Dolly~~Sooo very precious!!!!
Meet Susan~~another sweet darling!!!
These pumpkins look antiquey---the reason is cuz I was at the bottom of the frost shimmer mist bottle and it wasn't misting very well~~ but I think it gives character~~What do you think????
