Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby!

Hi folks!
It's 'Anything but a card' week over on Dare U 2 Digi stamp. I had so much fun putting this cute little gift bag together. I hope you are able to join in with the challenge. If you need some inspiration then check out the crafty makes by our Design Team... you will be blown away!
I have used some really lush papers by 'Cloud 9'. I amazed myself by actually cutting into them. Have had this set for ages and only stroked it thus far. All of you paper strokers out there will know where I'm coming from. I cut the gift bag shape using my Cricut Expressions. I used some matching cotton art tape for the top and bottom of the bag. The flowers I made using my Woodware punches; inked; shaped; adhered and topped off with a self adhesive pearl. The leaves are a Martha Stewart punch. Also added a couple of bits of wire and punched butterflies to the flower at the top. The little cutie is Ruby. She'll be available soon along with Hazel and Holly (still drawing my 'Christmas' Holly) as a Digi Stamp on my other blog. I have coloured Ruby with Copic markers.
Pretty simple design really, but I didn't want to cover the beautiful paper that I had used to make the bag itself.
Ciao for now!
Sandra xx

What a glorious gift bag Sandra. It's far too nice to give to anyone. I know exactly where you're coming from being a fellow paper stroker, although I am getting better at using them.
Love Ruby, she's just gorgeous.
