Altered gift bag with Devine Tilda

Hiya there guys!

Now is the weather where you are? Here in the Pilbara we have a Cyclone bearing down on our coast line. Where we are is inland so we are just getting hammered by rain, thunder and some wind. So perfect time to stay tucked up and craft.

So I have just got into making altered gift bags...and i LOVE it!!! So i would like to enter my creation into the following challenges-

Midweek Magnolias -Lace and Pearls
Magnolia-licious- anything but a card blog hop- theme 'circles, dots, spots and blots'
Marvelous Magnolia challenge blog- BOWanza
In the Pink  - For a special lady
Simply Magnolia- Lace and pearls

So for this i took a basic white paper gift bag

and decorated it. I used papers from Kaisercraft collection 'Pitter-patter girl' as it has lovely shades of pinks and even better- fabulous poker dot paper! I used dies from Magnolia, Sizzix and La La Land crafts. I coloured Devine Tilda with Distress inks. I made my own flowers from a rolled rose die from Sizzix.

The lace and the pearl trim are from my stash as is the bow on the top tying the bag together. I twisted pink/white candy striped baakers twine around the handles. I added some poker dot ribbon under the main image. There are 3 typed of lace used on it. The very bottom lace has beautiful pearls on it. I added 'Petal pink' perfect pearls to Tilda's dress so its like having spots on it. There is some gorgeous sparkle rose pink glitter tape along the bottom. I added some bright pink flat back pearls to finish off.

The sentiment is from LOTV.

I hope you like it.
