Black-eyed Susan

Good morning, I hope everyone is well and enjoying the new week. We have a new challenge for you at Bearly Mine Designs and this week the theme is - Anything Goes.

I decided to make a card and a matching Gift Bag this week using an image from this weeks sponsor and papers from the Bearly Mine Designs - Gingham set.

My image is from the Fred, She Said - Fall Flowers collection, there are four lovely images in this set and I have chosen to use the Black-eyed Susan image.  I have decoupaged the flower on both the card and the tag on the gift bag and have used Kraft card stock as my base.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

This is a close up of my card:

I have used the same papers to decorate the inside of my card and printed part of the flower on the greeting oval:

This is my gift bag, I have used a very similar design as on the card but have attached the image as a tag and added a couple of buttons tied with string:

Card Recipe:

Card Stock: Dies to Die For - Kraft
Tools: Spellbinders - Classic Oval, Lattice Accents, Woodware Corner Punch,
Mini Bowdabra
Embellishments: ribbon, buttons and string from stash
Sentiment: Wild Rose Studio

We are sponsored this week by Fred, She Said

and one lucky winner will receive a $20 Gift Certificate
