PBSC March - Easter

It's the first Saturday of the month...so that means it's time for a new Penny Black Saturday Challenge...and this month the theme is:

'Easter'

We are sponsored for this challenge by:

Prize - a $20 voucher

I decorated an Easter treat bag, and used 'Spring Chick' coloured using watercolour pencils together with some papers from the 'Party Girl' pad by American Crafts. I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The flowers are really old...they're from Poppicrafts and are held in place using a BasicGrey brad. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Egg-cellent Easter Sentiments' set by Amy-R/C C Designs.


I'm also entering this gift bag into the following challenges:


For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, and our wonderful guest designer Stephanie, please pop over to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.

Oh...and I have some candy on offer at the moment...you can find it here.
