Birthday gift bag

Good morning! I hope the weather is any better at your place than it is here. It was raining the whole day yesterday and I wasn't feeling like doing anything. At first I thought I would go picking chestnut to the nearby forest, but the rain ruined these plans for me. Hopefully the weather next weekend will be better and I will be able to do this.

A new challenge just started at Yumi and Fumi Handmade blog and it's everyone's favourite - anything goes. Remember, you can use any image you want on you creation, but you must used a stamped image. However, if you use Yumi and Fumi image, your name will be added a maximum of one extra time to the draw (regardless how many Y&F images you use on your creations). Also, please remember that you can only enter once. We hope to see a lot of you entering the challenge! :) 

I decided to make another gift bag. I just love these - they are really quick and easy to make and so fun! The one I'm about to show you was made for a very sweet lady who recently celebrated her birthday. And as she is a crafter as well and because Christmas is just around the corner, I put a lovely Christmas stamp in the bag. The bag was perfect size for it! :D

This is the front of the bag ...

... and this is the back of the bag.

The papers I used were a gift from my sweet friend Charlotta (thank you so much!!). Aren't they pretty? And again I used the sweet Fumi with gift for my main image that you can find in the Yumi and Fumi Handmade shop. Recently I seem to be using this image on all my birthday cards/projects. I coloursed the image with Faber Castell pencils. All of the flowers I used on my bag were made with Marianne design dies. Besides that I also used Spellbinders oval dies. I made dots on the scalloped oval with Viva decor pearl pen. I also used 2 different border punches on my bag. The brads, pearls and doily came from my stash.

I hope you like what you see and I hope you will come and play with us at Yumi and Fumi handmade too!
