Just Magnolia Papertake Weekly and Sophisti-cat Challenges :-)

I made this card following Bev's lovely sketch on the Just Magnolia Challenge

The image is a new Magnolia one ,, this one is called Jam Tilda from the Yummy In My Tummy Collection and will soon be available in the Simon Says Stamp Store ,,, they are winging their way towards the shelves right now :-)

I coloured both this image and the one on the bag with copics and used a little copic glitter pens too ,, they're fabulous, I coloured the background paper they are sitting on with Dusty Concorde distress ink which was diluted with a spray of water. The papers are all Funky Fairys Papercrafts . I used the brand new released Fancy Flourish set and It's so Distressing Vol 1 papers

I made this gift bag for the Sophisticat Challenge which I am very sorry to say I missed their first week last week ,,, :-(
I saw a gorgeous bag made by Jacqui on her blog yesterday, incidentally she is giving hers away with some fabby blog candy :-) I followed the link to the SCS website where there ia a tutorial on how to make this. you can see the Box in a Bag tutorial here.
As you can see I did faux stitching on the card and the bag using the lovely copic glitter pens so I am also entering these into the Papertake Weekly Challenge too :-)

It was so easy to make and will definitely be making more of these in future,,, lovely gift bag eh ! The sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub on available in the Simon Says Stamp Store ,,,, I love these :-)

I have a weekly blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp if anyone would like to take a look it is at the top of my blog.

Please don't forget to leave me a comment so I know you've dropped in for a visit :-)
