Baby Tingla Gift Bag

Hi everyone, I'm here at last. I have had a nightmare of a morning, William wanted to play minecraft on the PC. My PC is a bit on the old side and is so slow, so I thought I'd install Windows 8 on there, installed it and then tried to play minecraft, but the driver needs updating (??), so I messed around for about two hours, and still no joy. Not a happy bunny. I knew I had this to make, and considering this time yesterday I hadn't even started to colour my image in....
Over at Live and Love Crafts we're bringing baby projects this week, one of my best friends is due to have a baby girl in the next few weeks, so my project is for a baby girl. Now, don't be shocked (I am, lol), but I don't have a card today, instead I have a gift bag.

I found this quite hard, when I cut my huuuuge backing mat I sat looking at how much space there was to fill, and then I kept on going with my embellishments. I've used paper from Maja Designs Vintage Summer Basics, I've used 19231933 and a piece of 1924 for the tag.

I've coloured baby Tingla with distress markers. Along to bottom there is some Pink Organza Roses Trim, then I've placed some Heather Pink Rhinestone Lace on top of some Pink Pom Pom Trim. Across the middle there is some White Fleur's Des Jardins Lace and then some more Heather Pink Rhinestone Lace and the bag is fastened with a double bow using Ash Rose Shabby Seam Binding.

There is a Dummy Charm attached to some Jute Twine. The roses are from my stash, I've used a Petal Pink Hortensia, a White PoppyWhite Rolled Roses and a White Chrysanthemum. I've also used Melissa Frances White Pearls.

I'm off for a lay down now, lol.

I'm entering this into the In The Pink Challenge which is Punches and/or Dies, and of course pink, I've got them all.
Also into the 'Anything Goes' challenge at Tilda's Town.

Hope you all are enjoying your weekend, hugs,
