Yellow Rose Bag

Welcome.  First let me say, thank you to everyone who sent me messages/comments of encouragement.  All of your sweet, warm, and incredibly kind words, really have brighten my life!  I also, appreciate the suggestions on my conflicts at work.  {love}
With all of the heart felt words, I have found some creative juices, and did get a chance to create again.  {smile}  As some of you know, I am hosting a game night at my house next month for 11 of my girlfriends.  [Bunco]  If you didn't know, I have selected a theme: tea party.  And my design style is vintage/shabby chic.  I made a gift bag for one of the prizes.  However, once I got this one done, I realized that I have no idea of the size and shape of most of the prizes, because I haven't shopped yet.  So, I stopped at this one bag, and headed into town.  I have a few ideas as to what the prizes need/should be, however, I have a limited budget.
So, while I continue my shopping/hunting in town and on the internet, let me share with you, the one prize bag I have finished.  {smile}

I did find a great sketch challenge to help get this project together @ Paper LadyBirds.  If you get a chance, you should swing by their challenge site, and have a look at the beautiful work done by the design team.  Very inspirational.

Recipe:  I used the Front & Center die (by Paper Trey Ink), to create the front panel on the lunch sack.  The pattern paper is from a big stack.  I chose the large polka dot and rose/doily pattern papers.  I wanted something at the paper seam, so I added some cotton trim.  
I added a white tea doily to give some interest.  I added a trio of cream paper blossoms and a yellow multi-loop bow made from yellow seam binding.   I created a 'label' that is heat embossed in antique gold.  I added a trio of sequins (2 green and 1 white).
I don't know which prize bag this will be, but I needed to decide how to display the number.  So the '8' is just random!  And yeah, I just love to use mini wooden clothes pins.  I simply added a strip of pattern paper, and then added a half pearl.  Viola!
Thank you for looking!  And I'm pretty sure, I can keep creating, from the love I've received. {smile}
