purse - o-nality comes in all sizes

It's PTI blog hop night! So excited to be participating again. Tonight is also the first blog hop using Lauren Meader's fab timeless templates!!! HOORAY!
I have used Lauren's purse-o-nality tote a few times already but this time I mixed it up by reducing it's size by about half. This tiny tote is the perfect size for a lipgloss sized gift, or a little pair of earrings. Something fun and girly!

The top has been embossed with clear embossing powder and the flowers from the Life set have been embossed in black. A little bling and it's done. I love it and I love Lauren's templates!
Thanks for stopping by and can't wait to see what all of you do with YOUR time tonight :)
This is a comparison between the template at full size and how my mini version turned out :)

Supplies:
Template: Purse-o-nality tote from Papertrey Ink/Lauren Meader
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink Hibiscus, CM black
Stamp: Life set from Papertrey Ink/Lisa Johnson
Ink: versamark and Colorbox black
Embossing powder: clear UTEE, black
Other: gem
