Love to craft challenge 1

I am so excited and privileged to be part of the Design Team for the new challenge blog: Love to craft challenge 1: anything goes. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs by the rest of the team and we look forward to seeing your entries for our challenge.

I decided to alter this plain bag:

The background repeated greetings card was from Kanban, pleated white card from Create & Craft and black gems from Tiger, The pink piece of card with the pink flower with black glittered centre and repeated birthday sentiment was upcycled from a card received and the surround of the image at the bottom cut on Scan n Cut. Ribbons upcycled (given to me by a friend in case they could be of use).

This is also for:
