Its In the Bag!

Hi Ya!!  Well... our crappy weather came back (insert frowny face), but it looks like it will only be hanging around for a day or so and then clear off.  I can't complain though with so much of the country experiencing extremely hot weather.    My project today is for three challenges.   The JUGettes have challenged (JUGs #94) us this week to create and/or embellish a gift bag.  So I decided to combine that challenge with the current CR84FN challenge to use the colors of light pink, bright pink and yellow and the current Card Patterns sketch.  



A few weeks ago I got some new stamps from Layers of Color.  One of them was the beautiful cling stamp, May Bouquet.  So last week I inked it up and colored it with some Copic markers and then trimmed it out.  I had intend to make a card with it for the CR84FN challenge, but couldn't figue out a good design.  Thank goodness for the Card Patterns sketch!  After that everything just kinda came together.   Now I have a sweet little gift bag to give someone the next time I have a small gift to give!

Thanks for taking a peek....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & Lemon Tart; SU! pink & bright pink; Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black;  Stamps:  LOC May Bouquet; Embossing Folder:  Sizzix; Bakers Twine:  Impress; Punch:  EKSuccess
