I went into a cool Italian inspired clothing store with my oldest DD. I'm a seamstress, and the clothing in this store puts me in a happy place. Gorgeous construction, beautiful fabric, stylish, clean lines *sigh*. It's called Ecocci. Truly Fabulous! I always gravitate to the clearance rack - why pay full retail?!!!! - and I found this CUTE hand embroidered denim skirt that would be perfect for a 13 yo. She tried it on - $21 of happiness came home with us in a plain brown bag. DH was after me for a week to do something with that bag on the dryer...so I did! Do you like it?! He'll see it when he gets home in a few minutes. He's going to snort, say it's cute and then roll his eyes...
A GO-JUS gift bag like this just has to have a matching card. I used kraft paper and white craft ink, then sprinkled with bridal embossing tinsel. The butterfly was coloured with prismacolor pencils.

I used the Unity Stamp Company background stamp "live, laugh, love" and stamped it on the bag with white craft ink. The butterflies were done the same way as for the card.
stamps; beautiful butterfly, live,laugh, love (unity stamp company)
paper; coconut smoothie, starmist (bazzill), kraft cardstock (paper accents)
ink; white craft (SU!)
accessories; bridal embossing tinsel (ranger), dew drops (the robin's nest), prismacolors
