Free for all Friday

Flourishes Free for all Friday's are always fun I think. I am going to show you a little gift bag that I decorated up. Don't forget the New Release Bundle ends today and your chance at the 10% discount on the entire release.

This was a plain yellow bag that I took and added a bit of flair to it. Hollyhocks are such a pretty flower and in yellow they really seem springy to me. I stamped about 3/4 of the image on the side and colored the petals with copic collections Buttercup . Tied a bit of the black gingham ribbon around the handle and added a bow to the side.

Here is a close up of the panel. The sentiment was stamped on Spellbinders Classic oval, then layered onto the Fancy Tags Three. A few jewels to top it off and voila a transformed gift bag. Be sure to check out the goodies today from the Design Team:
