It's all about THE BAG!

 Hello and Welcome!
I love it when someone gets a gift in a
brown paper bag with a bonus of tissue paper.
This happened at Christmas time and I 
saved it from the recycle bin knowing
I was going to use it for our 
BAG IT Challenge 
Sistah aNNie chose the theme
and is such a popular trend at the moment.

A friend from another Design Team I am on 
made one some time ago and I knew I
wanted to go in a Mixed Media way.
I started with the background
(Gesso/Crackle Paste and Art Alchemy Sparks)
which I left for quite some time wondering
if I liked it. Lucky I did and it just
all flowed on nicely from there.
Used loads of 'stuff' from my stash
which included designer paper/card stock,
Laces, material flower, flourish,
die cuts, heat embossing, tissue paper, pearls.

Here's a close up showing the detail!

Thanks aNNie for a great theme
giving me the chance to try something
just a little different and give me a Mixed Media Fix!
Head over and see how my Talented Sistahs 
chose to showcase their Bags.
We'd love to see your artistic skills
in our Gallery and join in on the fun.

With Love!

 I have a quick post today for a couple of challenges.
Over at Color Hues this time round  the colours   
Red and Aqua got my attention 
and as I had butterflies around my desk the
I thought CAS and Colour would be a nice match up.

My background is some simple 
partial stamping from AALL&Create
and randomly coloured with the required red and aqua.
Fussy cut butterfly is the same.
To add interest I embossed it with a frame die
attaching it to the card base
after adding a simple sentiment. 

This card is heading over to the above Challenges.
and an Update!
Thanks for your visit and I love reading your thoughts.
