Basic Grey - Recycled

Thank you all for your fabulous entries for last challenge at Basic Grey,  you certainly showed us a variety of 'Wings' 
This time we would like you to recycle something, you all must have something around the house you can use. I tried to find something 'quirky' but came across this bag that i got something, it was a perfect size and in great condition so I couldn't resist using it.

I found this beautiful sheet of 12"x12" paper Marrakech I'd forgotten I had I used it back and front and stamped the edges with a stamp from the Stempelglede Heart collection and then very lightly inked the edges with Walnut stain distress ink. I coloured the adorable Tilda with Copics and cut her out with a Go Kreate die, I added some seam binding, leaves cut with a Crealies die and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. A pretty quick creation compared with my normal slow self!!

This is the back of the bag, I've left the label free to stamp a sentiment on when I know where this is going and who to, or......should I add  little swinging tag to the handle for the sentiment and to write on and have another image on the back side?? Decisions, decisions!!!

As always, our wonderful sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering one lucky winner a fabulous $25 shopping spree in the Simon Says Superstore, just think of the goodies you could treat yourself to with that !!

Now I'm off to the airport and I'll see you all in a couple of weeks - well I do have DT cards to post and if my grandson will let me use his computer I might even be able to come a visiting!!
I shall be at the NEC next Saturday so I shall be looking out for any of you and if you see me please stop and say Hello - I'd love to meet you!!

Have a lovely time at the NEC. Love the Walnut Stain & stamped edging - gorgeous combination of colours & such a stunning floral creation with those dies. Actually i think this is pretty quirky for a paper bag too.
