Papercraft Star Executive Team Reveal

It Friday's (whoot whoot) and also my turn for the Papercraft Star Executive Team Reveal.  I had such a great time working with another Liz Chidester sketch (she is such a talented sketch artist and papercrafter as well!) for this week's sketch challenge at Papercraft Star.



It just so happens that a couple of weeks ago, one of my daughter's (hi Cait!) celebrated a birthday, so I used this sketch to create a gift bag and card for her. I know, I know, ANOTHER gift bag and card... BUT, when I have the opportunity to use a challenge to actually create something I know I already have a recipient for, I just have to combine the two... I can't help myself! For me, this means that I won't be adding to the growing pile of cards I've created that I still haven't given away!

Anyhow, the event (her birthday) and this challenge also gave me a chance to pull out some new Bo Bunny patterned paper and chipboard that I purchased in early January (another plus!).



Other products I used to create this gift bag and card set included cardstock, stamps and ribbon from Papertrey Ink, Hot Rocks (adhered with my I-Rock) by Imaginisce, dies from Spellbinders and an EK Success border punch.  The bag I purchased in a bundle that was on clearance from my local Meijer store (in fact, I bought three packs of ten bags for just a few dollars... gotta love a bargain!).

Okay, so there is still time for you to join in this week's challenge (but you gotta hurry) so hop on over to Papercraft Star lickety-split to join in... I'll look forward to seeing what you create!

I just love your card, the patterned paper is so pretty. I haven't seen it yet and now it's on my 'to buy' list. And the gift bag is very pretty - great idea!
