*** Lift The Person Before You Challenge...

Well, today I am going to share with you a project I made for the challenge over at Clearly I Stamp. The theme is lift the person before you [the person who commented before you on the CIS challenge blog] and that person is Beth , from Beth's Beauties.
Here is her project that I lifted:
Isn't it just the cutest Baby gift bag. Love the colours Beth used and the fact that it wasn't a card was also interesting to me. So I chose to lift the colour "Purple" and the "Gift Bag" idea from Beth and this is what I came up with.
I used the sketch pattern from Twist of Faith to complete the front of my gift bag. The digital image I used is one of Sherry Baldy's cute little Besties, which I coloured with my Copics. I used a Spellbinder Die to cut out the image and it's mat as well as the leaves. The flowers are by Spare Parts. The pretty iridescent lace was purchased at Walmart, [it has a bit of elastic in it to give it some stretch]. The tying ribbons were left over pieces from my stash. The DPs I think I have had nearly since the beginning of my paper crafting days...yes they are old, very, very old!, but they still had a use and a good one at that! I did a bit of faux stitching around the outside. I decided to give her a bit of bling and added some glitter to her petticoats, flower and ponytail holders.
Here is the inside, which holds a gift card. I don't know why the DP looks different {front to back} because it is exactly the same colour - must have been the flash from my camera!

So there you have my lift of Beth's original project. Even though I was a bit apprehensive at first about this challenge it really has been a fun thing to do. I hope you will give it a try as well.
Thanks for stopping by.
Wishing you a wonderful day.

What a wonderful tribute to my gift bag! I absolutely adore your project :) I love the DP you used, it is so elegant. Plus another element that is the same on our projects are the scalloped ovals. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog and look at my projects!

What a darling gift bag for baby! Thanks for playing at DRS Designs!


Beautiful! Thanks for sharing at Brown Sugar Challenge!


Awesome job! This is such a cute little gift card holder. So much better than just sticking one inside a card (which is mostly what I do!). Love your purples and those gorgeous flowers.


Your card is so pretty! The purple looks great and I love the glittery accent on your girl! I love that you turned your card into a gift card holder based on the lift. So clever! Thank you so much for joining us at Clearly iStamp! Hugs!-Katy DT :)


What a wonderful creation! I like all the purple! Thank you for playing with us at Crafty ribbons! Hugs! xx
