Mother's Day Gift Bag

 Hello everyone :)
I hope you are all well and have had a good week !

This weeks C4E Recipe Challenge has now been posted and we are asking you to share your 
projects with us. We have 2 great prizes up for grabs from regular sponsors Stamping All Day and The Digi Garden!
There is fabulous inspiration from the C4E DT and a chance to join us with this years DT call.
Hop over 
for all the details, inspiration and challenge details.


I have made another altered gift bag this week, which will be perfect for a little Mother's Day gift.
This time I trimmed down the bag taking off the plain handles.
I've added some Tim Holtz DP (again!), 2 Tim Holtz diecut flourishes, Martha Stewart punched butterflies, tiny flatback gems and some stickles.

 For the Flower I used THIS fabulous tutorial! I used Distress inks and Perfect Pearls Mists to colour my flowers instead of the Glimmer Mists Lisa used and a sunburst punch for my centres instead of the ones in the tutorial.
 I had lots of fun making variations of these flowers which will no doubt end up on the next few projects I do lol!
Apologies for the poor photo quality today :(
