The Roses Challenge......


Last Sunday of the month is The Roses Challenge and this month it was my turn to pick the theme.
I sent out plain white bags as well as paper, felt, ribbon a tag and some clear dew drops. 

Betty, Olga, Connie, Kym and Kerrie are the other 5 members of this little group. The brief was to decorated the white bag using some stamping, the felt and ribbon plus anything else in the parcel or whatever embellishments they wanted to add.
I decided to make a Christmas gift bag with mine.  The felt has been cut using a scallop die from QuicKutz. I stamped a few images from ABS Holly stamps over the mid section and coloured with Prisma's. 
Here's a close up of the tag. I've used the ribbon to attach the tag  and tied a couple of bells
on the ends of the ribbon. Click on the links if you want to see what the Roses have done to decorate their bags.

See you soon I hope.......


Edit:   I've added the links to the girls blogs but don't forget we in Australia are ahead of the US.... sorry girls!!!
