Timeless Tuesday #123


Welcome to another Timeless Tuesday challenge! We're up to #123 this week, and Betty is our challenge hostess. She wants us to "bag" it up this week... use brown grocery bag paper in your creation... whether you choose to make a mini brown bag album, or use the brown paper in some way as a background, or embellishment... anything goes!
I used a brown paper lunch bag to punch out 10 scalloped circles, then scrunched them all up to make a poofy flower for my card. Then I used a piece from a brown kraft gift bag to make a scalloped border beneath my sentiment panel. The sentiment I used is from the Hello Hyacinth stamp set, and is cut out with a Labels 14 Nestabilities die. I accented the upper right corner with some Chocolate KaiserCraft pearls.

See what my Flourishes team sisters have created in the bag today, too...

I'm loving these brown paper bag flowers I'm seeing in this challenge. I imagine with all those layers they would hold up to a bit of abuse in the mail system as well, Love the brown and pink together. (Of course I do that's the same colour combo I used, he he he)
