At Craft-room Challenge the theme is' Friendship' so that was appropriate. The Crafty Card Makers have 'Create you Own Flowers' and I just love doing that. Last but by no means least Sugar Creek Hollow are asking for 'Circles'.
Brain in gear I have combined the three and hope my friend will like the result. I am sure she will like the bottle of red wine in the bag and the vintage type bracelet I have added to the Crafty Individuals tag.
The flowers are a length of gathered, white lace with double sided tape stuck to the gathered edge and wound round and round on a circle of card to make the shape. Then I dabbed them with Rangers Distressed Inks. It was difficult to find something that looked right for the middles so I stuck some little beads on two of them and a pearl on the other.
The 'May our Friendship Blossom Stamp' is by personal Impressions and I won it in the first Birthday Draw at Craft-room Challenge with lots of other goodies--thanks Julia
The other stamp is ancient, an old wooden one by Whipper Snapper Designs.
I think the bag looks better than when I bought it--it was only 20p from the car boot sale so not worth making one.
