My First Crafted Bag

Good afternoon all,
I thought I'd have a go at decorating a bag as I've not tried this before, I bought these plain white gift bags in the States from Hobby Lobby
I've used card & paper from the Country Christmas pad again (stitched)
 large white paper doily
Gorgeous faded gold ribbon and poinsettia & holly leaves from Michaels
lace from Walmart
 Sizzix envelope die 
Magnolia flourish & tag dies,  
Stamps ~ Magnolia Tilda, Holly & 24th Decenber 

Challenges
TOMIC ~ use a paper bag & photo inspiration
Dutch Magnolia Lovers ~ pimp a package
Truly Madly Crafty ~ inspiration picture
Hanna and Friends ~ pimp something

Hope you like it, luv & hugs
