Hello! Look at me posting on a sunday lol (well actually it's a pre scheduled post so don't shoot me if my project doesn't appear at the relevant challenges straight away I will link it up when I get home from work!) Today is a new challenge over at One stitch at a time and the challenge this wk is to use stars and stripes on your project. I decided to make a gift bag this time and have used the stunning papers from Susan's Crafty chaos designs which you can purchase here I have used the fragrant mint collection but I found it hard to choose as her papers are all so gorgeous!!
The stripes on my bag are courtesy of Susans lovely papers and my stars are my cut out centre star which I have printed Stitchys Silhouette "reach" onto vellum and glittered around, she is available from the stitchy bear store too. I have also punched stars of vellum and stickled, joined together by chains and jump rings and finished off with a silver star charm for the long bag charm at the side. My flowers are wild orchid crafts and my lace is from stash. I have taken a photo in evening sunlight so you can see how it shines through the vellum.
My sentiment tag was made with a stampin up stamp, some embroidery thread and eyelets.
I am putting this into Pollycrafts challenge of anything but a card using glitter and or lace, I don't however want to win so don't put me into the running folks give someone else a chance as the prize is the new kits from the creative cottage and I have all these courtesy of Tracy lol!
