Coin purse and card, NBUS Challenge#7

Love playing along with Darnell Knauss, and her NBUS challenge,
#7, anything goes,

Made a card and coin purse to house a gift card for 
a friend's birthday.

Haven't used this darling cake from PTI called Colorful Treats.
During it's release, Erin Lincoln did the cake in chocolate with an aqua icing.
Loved it, but colored mine in raspberry, then added pink german glass glitter.
Glossy accented the dollop of cream. 
Also added the Cover Plate: Awning as Erin did on her card, doing mine in
Raspberry Fizz and Stormy Sea.

Just ordered the dies for the Coin Purse (PTI), and love it! 
A 'NBUS' for me,
So many possibilities, 
can't wait to do more in other color combos.
This one in Canyon Clay, Smoky Shadow, and Vintage Cream.

It holds a gift card.

Decorated with Sewing Staples: Sewing Clusters,
and an aqua button from PTI's Vintage Holiday Mix.

Play along with NBUS here:


  1. Cute, cute card with that yummy looking cake Nancy, and I love your coin purse! I have that die (have had it since it first came out!!) and have never used it, so I guess mine qualifies as a NBUS too! Actually did cut one out, but never stitched it up and now I don't remember where I put sad! But anyway, love the purse and the card...great combination!! Hope you have a fabulous holiday weekend my friend!! :0)

  2. What a fabulous gift set! That coin purse is darling and I love the colors you used. The cake looks scrumptious all glittered up like that. Love, love this set!
