Just Us Girls #94 - It's in the Bag!

Hello there!  It's Saturday and time for another Just Us Girls challenge.  This week is our 3-D/Template challenge and the lovely Dana has a chosen a fun challenge...decorate a gift bag!  So many options with this one!

I went sort  of simple with this.   I started with a kraft bag (quite a large one...I wish it was smaller) and added a Vintage Cream layer and this beautiful dp from the Curtain Call Collection by Graphic 45.  I made the black rose using My Time Made Easy's Rambling Rose cut file

The label is another cut file from MTME called Cornice Trimmed Oval.  The sentiment is from Sentimental Occasions, also from MTME.  The ribbon is from SU.  I wish I had some of those pretty crystal flourishes that Dana and Elise use to fill up that upper corner...I think it would have looked so pretty! 

Want to see more designs?  Stop by the JUGs blog to see what the JUGs team and guest designer Christina MacLaren have done. 

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be back with another post tomorrow!

Classy is the word that came to my mind too! Love your bag and the black flower is the perfect embellishment!
