Seaside Life Gift Bag

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE - Certainly Pixie Appeal. OK as MotherMark would say here is my story: Recently my darling daughter has been attempting to dethrown the Queen of Combos by combining multiple challenges from the Dare to Get Dirty Challenge list and then had the gaul to call me up and challenge me to "cowboy up!". Well, how can I not take that dare? LOL. Today I decided to not make a card when I found this darling gift bag creation on FOLLOW YOUR HEART BLOG and just had to make one because of LodiChicks' DTGD - IT'S IN THE BAG CHALLENGE. They are simple and darling as well. In making my bag I decided to use a set I just got from Flourishes, I mean why buy if your not going to use it right? My bag is made with some vanilla textured dp for DeborahLynn's DTGD - TAKEN WITH TEXTURE CHALLENGE. I stamped some of the coral in certainly celery on the bag. Also the bag uses ribbon as handles and Lauraly's DTGD - TIE ONE ON CHALLENGE is to use ribbon on your creation. I punched the word window punch after stamping the sentiment in pixie pink because Becca wanted us to DTGD - CUT IT OUT using punches. I also stamped and cut out several of the seashell images then distressed the edges of the tag with appricot appeal ink and attached it to the sea shell brad and popped it up. I put a tag on because Genie's DTGD - TAG ART CHALLENGE was to use a tag. Well Shannon, now it's your turn again to "cowboy up!". LOL. I filled this bag with some pink grass and hard candy. Hope you like it.

Neva, this is adorable! I'm going to have to check out this challenge. I just made my first 2 bags about a week ago and sold them before I had a chance to take photos. Something new and fun! I love your sea theme. Wonderful!
