The Shabby Tearoom's Week #180 Challenge 'Material Girl'

Just look at this gorgeous image from The Shabby Tearoom's Challenge this week .................. SOOOOOO beautiful.
Well, it really bought out the 'do something more then a card' in me. I am sure that was due to the fabulous baskets from the DT girls....just yummmm!!! So this is a first for me, and what fun it was, good and bad. The process of making a wee bag from scratch without a pattern or a 'how to' was, well, let's just say, I learnt a lot, about what NOT to do.
 
 
 
 
Here is the result.................
 
 
I rolled the flowers using knit mesh for the white flowers, and quilting cotton for the Aqua flowers. This filled the material and flowers criteria for the challenge.
 
 
I knew all along the bag would have tissue inside. This was provided by the beautiful packing in my parcel from Verve stamps that arrived a few days ago. Beautifully wrapped.
 
The sentiment is from Hero Arts.


 See what you think??

Thanks for your visit.
Happy creating....................
