It's in the Bag Tilda!

Hi!  I had some stamping time this weekend and made this gift bag for a receipient in my Card Club.  We have our Christmas party this week and we each bring items (all the same) to fill the bags, then we draw numbers to see who take which bag home.  This is my first year with this 'lots of fun' group! I can't wait to see the bags everyone designed!!
And, if you're up for a challenge, we have one going on at Magnolia-licious Highlites!  Use Mini wrapped and Unwrapped Tilda to make a Christmas project to enter.  Diana has special pricing (click to see them all!) on the two stamps!!! A great deal!!
 I used #3082 TILDA WITH CROSS STITCH HEART as well as the #448 SANTA BENCH . They are both in stock at the best store for Magnolias and the TILDA is even 20% off right now!  Check it out!!
 I have had the urge lately to use pink and white, but I found I just needed to add the brown in there too!  So an all white card with pink is still on my list!  I used R81, 83 and 85 for her sweater, hat and socks.  the browns are many of the E markers in my collection!  I usually start with E42 or 31 and just keep deepening and blending with the lighter marker until I get the look I want.

I used the Spellbinders poinsettia die with PTIs sparkly white card stock.  There's also a layer of it behind Tilda, embossed in snowflakes and then sponged in some blushing bride ink. My greenery is cut from some inexpensive picks I got at Michael's or Hobby Lobby.  They really add more sparkle!
Sorry about all the pics!  With the new blogger I couldn't tell which ones I had used!
This is the whole bag. I used MS pine bough punch for the top and bottom.  Thanks for coming by!! Hope you had a nice weekend and wishing you a good week ahead,
Cheryl
