CRAFT Challenge DT - Not a card

A very good morning to you,

Today is the start of a new challenge over at the CRAFT Challenge Blog.  This week the theme is NOT A CARD so you have plenty of scope and we'd love you to share your projects with us.  As usual we have some fantastic prizes up for grabs from our sponsors:

I decided to make a little Valentine's gift bag for my DT project.  The image I've used is by Diane's Daydream who sadly have now closed their online shop due to the new EU VAT rules that came into effect on 1st January.  It's a very difficult time for shops that deal exclusively or mainly in digital media.

I've coloured the image with Promarkers using just a handful of colours to suit the style of the digi.  The plain kraft bag is from Hobbycraft as are the DPs which are from a Recollections Valentines pad which says on the back that it was made for Michael's Stores so I'm not quite sure how the ended up in Hobbycraft in the UK but they're really cute and I think they're VERY similar to MME.  The 'Bingo' card and heart border are also cut from the paper pad.  The newsprint paper is by Stampin' Up.  I've added some letter stickers from the Madame Payraud collection by Docrafts and embellished with glitter heart stickers, pearls, ribbon and paper cord from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by, hope to see you again soon.
