Cute Card Thursday Challenge 55 "Marshmallows & Chocolate"

A little news from me.....I offered my services to the DT over on Cute Card Thursday Challenge Blog as a temporary stand in for Annie & Lynn (my fellow Tilda & Friends ATC DT Members) while they were taking a well deserved break, so for the next month I will be joining them.

This week the theme is "Marshmallows & Chocolate", so basically you use Pink & Brown on your card or project....one of my favourite colour combos. For my project I have made a gift bag...perfect for holding easter eggs, sweets...well anything really. This has been made with a white paper bag trimmed down to 4.5 x 3.5 inches. I have then created cardstock page to conceal the bag. Before sticking down the cardstock I have added some ribbon handles...this cute ribbon is by KI Memories Love Elsie "Betty" range. I have added a Sugar Nellie Gorjuss Girl. The paper for the base is 7Gypsies which I have inked with Distress Inks "Vintage Photo" and added some lipstick kisses with a stamp I got in the sale from Sir Stampalot and some pink versamagic chalk ink. I have embellished with Prima Blossom held on with a spacer and Doodlebug sugar coated brad, a heart pin, so lace, SU Choc Chip taffeta ribbon, a dragonfly charm and a tag by CI Creative Cafe range.
The back is also decorated in a smililar fashion...

Here is a picture of the side on view showing evidence of the original paper bag...

So come over and join us.....the rest of the super talented DT's cards are awesome.
Hugs
