Magnolia Down Under Challenge DT - Polka Dots!

This week at Magnolia Down Under Challenge we have a lovely theme of "Polka Dots"!! I lovew spotty papers don't you? I decided to make a gift bag instead of a card. All the papers are by Magnolia, from the fairytale collection and I have distressed everything with walnut stain distress ink. I have punched the top edge of the bag with MS doily lace punch and the polka dot paper with MS daisy edge punch.

I just adore this Tilda from the fairytale collection, she is so gorgeous. She is coloured with distress inks and I have added lots of stickles to her wings and the trims on her dress.

Hanging from the chiffon bow at the top of the bag is a gift tag with the ever so tiny fairy Tilda on it, also coloured with distress inks.

On the reverse of the tag I have used the To and From stamp from the winter kit. The gem brads are from the Hobby House and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, all sprayed with glimmer mist. I have also added a scrap of lace from my stash.

On the back of the bag I have used the "a gift from the heart" sentiment, stamped with victorian velvet distress ink and a mini Tilda which I managed to get at the NEC, she's so sweet!! I finished the bag with some red grosgrain ribbon handles.

Here is a close up of the mini Tilda, I got two but wish I'd got more now, they're so adorable to colour! The heart charm is from the Hobby House.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenge! Pop and have a look at the rest of the team's Polka Dot creations, they're stunning as usual! x
