*** 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.
hugs,
Nancy

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 :)
