Totally Gorjuss 36 - It's in the Bag.

Hello everyone and it's time for another challenge over at Totally Gorjuss. This week our challenge is "It's in the bag", we'd like you to make a simple gift bag. My bag is certainly simple and very easy to make lol! I found the tutorial over at Split Coast Stampers. All you need is one sheet of 12"x12" double sided paper.

The original didn't have any leaves but I managed to smudge one of the liquid pearls and had to add something to cover the smudge - hence the leaves! After I had taken several photos I then realised that I hadn't added stickles to her dress. Thank goodness for digital cameras lol.

I used :-
Image :- Magnolia.
DP :- Cloud Nine.
Sentiment and card candy :- Craftwork cards.
Flowers :- Prima.
Colouring :- Promarkers. Distress Inks - round scallop oval and sentiment.
Sakura clear gel pen and clear glitter gel pen.
Nellie Snellen leaf punch, nesties, Liquid Pearls and Stickles.
I think that's it girls. I'm not sure if it fits any challenges but I'll think about that later. Meantime it is late Friday evening as I write so I'm leaving this post to the tender mercies of Mr. Blogger.
Pollycraft :- No cards allowed plus use glitter and/or lace. No lace but I have used glitter.
Bunny Zoe's challenge :- Nice and Girly.
Enjoy your weekend.
