Tilda Gift Bag for my friend!

I found this template on Wendy's blog this morning and it's just what I needed for my friend Sarah's birthday present (jewellery that I haven't made yet, but I know what I want)!

I've used some more of the Henbury Lane flowered paper, as well as some polkadot paper from a magazine freebie. The image is one from the new wedding collection of Magnolia's. I think she's called "Sitting bridesmaid" - I think weddings are my new favourite thing - after going to one in  May & one in June I'm a bit sad to not have any more to go to this year (unless anyone suddenly decides to get engaged)!
I've coloured Tilda with my Promarkers, and added some lovely flowers around the edge (love roses too!)

Challenges I'm entering:
Just Magnolia #60 - In the garden
Moving Along With The Times #52 - Birthday but not a card
Passion for Promarkers #57 - Your Favourite Things
ABC Challenge = X for Extra Dimension
Totally Gorjuss #35 - Sugar & Spice
Paper Sundaes #23 - Pretty as a Princess
