Paper Pals Art Colour Challenge

Here is a bigger purse I have made thinking it would be good for about 15 cards and envelopes.
It was a challenge for me, the colour I struggled with was Wisteria Wonder.
 I'm pleased with it but I think I will have rethink for my mystery box challenge, the cards and envelopes fit but not to nicely.
I made my own DSP on Whisper White Card with Betsy Blossoms Stamp Set.
I have used Silver 1/8" Ribbon from the Occasions Catalogue.
 I love the flower, I made it using the Blossom and Pansy Punch and Watercolor paper.
I wet the paper using my Aqua Painter the added drops of Night of Navy, Wisteria Wonder and Smoky Slate Ink Refills, the I rolled in my hands while still wet layered 2 blossoms and 1 pansy, in the middle I punch a little flower from Itty Bitty Punch Set in Silver Glimmer Paper and added a Smoky Slate Candy Dot and added some Dazzling Diamonds to it.
 For the straps of the purse I used Large and Small Oval Punches, then I added Candy Dots.
I have just noticed as I am doing this post, that one of the navy dots has fallen of or I forgot to put one on (so please imagine that it is there, I will be fixing it very soon).
I added Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the eye of bird and Dazzling Diamonds in the middle of the big flowers.
