happy day gift bag

** 3/30/16 Top 5 at Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog! **
** 3/30/16 Spotlight Winner at Ruby's Rainbow! **

Hi everyone! It's time for another fun challenge over at Really Reasonable Ribbon! I'm super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for #137 - Welcome Spring with Ribbon or Trim! Dig into your crafty stash and come play with us!

There's no better way to welcome Spring than with flowers and a 'happy day' sentiment! I created an adorable little gift bag using the absolutely gorgeous Pearl Pink Double Faced Satin Ribbon from the March Ribbon Club Assortment. This satin ribbon is heavenly! ;)

And of course, I created my pretty double loop bow with my Bow-it-All v2.0. I say all the time that I love this tool and don't know how I ever got along before having it, lol! I embellished the center of this one with an adorable heart button.

All these pretty flowers are stamped. I used first, second and third generation stamping technique for the largest flower (with multi-step stamps), and first and second generation stamping for the leaves (also multi-step stamps). I stamped off once for the medium flower and used full strength ink for all the small flowers. I fussy cut the large flower and all the other flowers are punched. I thought the bling flourish was the perfect touch. :)

Here's one last (angled) view, so you can see just how stinkin' cute this little bag is, lol! Love it! :)
