Tickled Pink Stamps Meets Anya Ink

This week Tickled Pink Stamps is sponsoring the Anya Ink Challenge and the TPS team were able to join the fun. The challenge is a recipe - 3 flowers, 2 buttons and a bow. It was great to join in because it gave me the excuse to ink up my sadly neglected CC stamps - you can use either Greeting Farm OR CC Stamps for Anya Ink.

As you can see I haven't made a card - I actually made a little gift bag. The bag pattern is one of the 3 bags in Becky Roberts' (Inking Idaho) Tres Chic Handbag tutorial - and soo much fun to make. I decided to make this little bag for one of my fellow MDUC DT members to pop a little birthday present in - I know she LOVES handbags and I not only got to meet her yesterday in person for the first time but it was also her birthday.

I also made her a card to match - using the same designer papers and my Tim Holtz tattered floral die for the large flower. I didn't quite manage to use the full recipe on the card - but I did get to use another of my CC stamps!

OH WOW - I can't believe I missed this one (where have I been). This is a gorgeous little bag (must get that template) and the matching card is perfect. I love the way you have her sitting on the ribbon on the bag and of course a Debbie trademark - flowers. The flower on the card is beautiful.
