Happy Birthday Gift Bag in Pink

Hi, Friends.......

I am here with a sweet little Happy Birthday gift bag I made for a new challenge blog: Always Happy Birthday. If you are like I am, you make a lot of birthday cards. So I think this challenge blog is going to be a popular one! Their inaugural challenge theme this January is Birthday + Pink Card Base. Any birthday-themed craft project is eligible, so I made a gift bag using pink cardstock for the main part of the bag.

Supplies used include:
We R Memory Keepers - Gift Bag Punch Board
Thrift store birthday stamp
Versafine Ink - Smokey Gray
Ranger - TH Distress Markers
Zig - Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen for shimmer on the sentiment panel (can't see it in the photo)
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set
Scraps from stash
Gold sequins from stash
Ivory ribbon from stash

Hope you will join in the Always Happy Birthday challenge this month!! Thank you for stopping in today.

  8. This is absolutely lovely Janis. The colours and print are happy and fun, a beautiful gift bag.

    Side note:Thank you so much for the lovely, lovely Christmas card and gift. I got it last night and was very surprised! You are so SWEET! HUGS and Happy New Year to you and your family.

  9. Great gift bag Janis - so pretty. I did giggle about the cat rules :)

    And of course it's fine for you to whip through the prizes saying if you'd like to play for them. As a 'regular' in the Playground I know you'd have commented bit by bit - given time. What I was trying to avoid was everyone doing it all in one go right at the end - a few people I can handle but not an avalanche :)

    Happy New Year my friend!
