Magnolia Down Under Challenge DT - Birthdays

It is time for another challenge at Magnolia Down Under Challenge and this week the theme is "birthdays". I decided to make a gift bag for my friend's little girl who's birthday is soon.

I have used MS punch around the page Flower Shower punch around the whole cardstock before folding into the bag shape and adding the sides and handle.
I love this Tilda from the Wedding Collection as she's perfect for any occasion where you give a gift! I've coloured her with copics to match the paper which is from MME La Paperie stack. I inked the edges with Victorian Velvet distress ink and stickles.
I have added some Prima flowers together with a tag from my stash and one of my flower buttons (see my tutorials page for details). The leaves were punched with a Woodware leaf punch and I have also added some butterflies punched with MS punches. I have covered the leaves and butterflies with stickles.
The back of the bag is decorated with the same paper and flowers and my signature stamp.

I punched the handle with MS doily lace punch before adding some pink paper ribbon and some Kaisercraft gems. Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenge! Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the teams amazing creations! Thanks for looking! x

What an amazing amazing creation. sorry it has taken me so long. Must admit that I forgot until I got the gorgoeus card and my candy stamp in the mail. thanks so much and it didn't take long to arrive at all. I must ask though what size Nestie did you use on the ovals. I have been wanting ones that size.
