Artistic Inspirations Challenge #37 - 2nd post

Hello Crafters!
As I said in my previous post our sponsor this week for Artistic Inspirations is:
 They are offering 5 digis from their shop for the winner and their shop is full of great designs. I have chosen Waking Up Birdie for my second image this week.
This project is a quick and easy little gift bag great for May Day, Mother's Day or anytime. For all of the detailed instructions, see yesterday's post.

On this bag I chose to use a strip of SU designer paper down the middle of my blue card stock. I also used the big note die from SU for a layer behind the image. I had to cut it down a bit to fit the width of the bag but it added a little dimension to the layout design. The image colored with Spectrum markers and popped up on black card stock with foam tape. I added a little decorative ribbon as well. The handles are from SU ribbon I had in my stash. And again, I added a little bling on the flowers and a clip to hold the bag closed. Another gift bag done. Wonder who will get this one?

So, be sure to join in the challenge over at Artistic Inspirations this week. It's almost an anything goes challenge - minus the cards of course. The DT have some great inspiration projects for you as well.

Happy Crafting!
