Friday Executive Team Reveal

This is Beth with Friday's Papercraft Star Executive Team Reveal.  I had such a great time working with another Liz Chidester sketch (she is such a talented sketch artist and papercrafter as well!).

It just so happens that a couple of weeks ago, one of my daughter's celebrated a birthday, so I used this sketch to create a gift bag and card for her. I know, I know, ANOTHER gift bag and card... BUT, when I have the opportunity to use a challenge to actually create something I know I already have a recipient for, I just have to combine the two... I can't help myself! For me, this means that I won't be adding to the growing pile of cards I've created that I still haven't given away!

Anyhow, the event (her birthday) and this challenge also gave me a chance to pull out some new Bo Bunny patterned paper and chipboard that I purchased in early January (another plus!).

Other products I used to create this gift bag and card set included cardstock, stamps and ribbon from Papertrey Ink, Hot Rocks (adhered with my I-Rock) by Imaginisce, dies from Spellbinders and an EK Success border punch.  The bag I purchased in a bundle that was on Clearance from my local Meijer store (in fact, I bought three packs of ten bags for just a few dollars... gotta love a bargain!).

Okay, so there is still time for you to join in this week's challenge... and I can't wait to see what you create!

Pretty fabulous! Why not get two for the price of one!

LOVE that paper! If I tell you when my birthday is, will you make me a bag and a card? :)
Thanks for the inspiration Beth

I love altered gift bags. You added some great touches with the card, the paper, and the color combo. Beautiful project. :)
