Week 169 its a gift at Allsorts

We look set for some pretty miserable bank holiday weather here in Leeds so what better way to start the dreary weekend with than another Saturday challenge from Allsorts

the challenge this week from the lovely Brenda is
'its a gift'
I decided on a tall gift bag using a fab image from Some Odd Girl Summer Kayleigh

teamed with some fab papers but I don't know who they are by (if you do give me a shout) I die cut some buttons from matching cardstock and gave them the glossy accents treatment. I cut the handle with nestie circles through each layer lining them up to the next layer for an even finish.
Kayleigh was coloured with promarkers i'm liking her pink hair lol!

Have a great weekend hope to see you over at the challenge blog

Guest DT for the Craft Garden

This week I am pleased to be a Guest Designer for The Craft Garden
their challenge this month is to take inspiration from the picture below

Here is my card I was sent a beautiful kit of embelishments to play with too!

The paper i've used was in my stash drawer but I think its an old K&Co one thought it would work well with the colours on offer, the flowers were from the fab kit and a SOG  image (beach Mae I think) to finish off..

Thanks for having me at The Craft Garden Kerry!!

have a great Wednesday everyone!
