Michelle Perkett Sweetie Bag/Box

Michelle Perkett is having a DT call from now till August 15th, so I thought I'd give it a go. She wants you to make a creation with the above Birthday image which she's offering free. I've been lucky enough to have used a few of Michelle's images, and love them.

For my creation I've made a sweetie bag/box. I followed a template by Clare at Craft Mad and Loving It

I used thick double-sided card which I got from QVC, and punched the top with a gorgeous Martha Stewart punch. The image was coloured with promarkers and inked round the edges with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I also added Glossy Accents to the icing on the cake. It was die cut with an oval Nestie, and matted onto blue card die cut with a scalloped oval Nestie. I added it to the little bag with foam pads.

2 holes were punched through both layers with a Cropodile, then some blue polka dot ribbon from stash pulled through and tied in a bow.
The pearls are by Prima, and I found this gorgeous acetate butterfly in my stash, and just added a few more pearls to its body.
