JUST BECAUSE

Hi all, firstly I would like to thank you all so much for your lovely comments while I have not really been around
I have two shares for you today both a card and gift bag.
My first show is a card I made recently using one of my old Sugar Nellie stamps this one is called Daisy, I have coloured her with my usual markers, the papers are from a 12" x 12" pad that I got from the Range they are all double sided which worked well with this particular design.
I was watching Ann-Marie from Hunkydory on Create and Craft and saw her make a card with the cut and pulled back centre.
I really liked it and this is what I came up with, I used pink enamel dots on the corners, the flowers are Dreamees all stamped with TH Vintage Photo Ink then cut out, they look different because I actually pleated two of them, I then added clear beads in a bottle that come out white but turns clear when dried, they actually took on the colour of the papers.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:



My second share is a gift bag that my son asked me to make, I watched some YT videos and saw this particular bag that was so easy I gave it ago.
I used a 12" x 12" papers, I used my scalloped punch on the top then added a double organza pink ribbon the oval was done with one of my dies.
The image is once again an Elisabeth Bell digi called Easter Cutie, I coloured her with Copics then cut her out with one of my new Tattered Lace Oval die the pink also is part of the set, I then added another Tattered Lace circle die, the Daisies are die cut with a pink flower pearl for their centres then finally I punched out a butterfly.  This was filled with mini chocolate chickens and bunnies then my son gave it to his girlfriend for Easter.
I would like to enter my gift bag into the following challenges:
