Then finally
Craft-Dee BowZ  to leave a comment to say you have joined in the hop

I have made this card and bag combo using a 6x6 card blank. I embossed the background with an embossing folder ,and cut a pretty edge with a sizzlit edge die.I used a stunning rich purple organza ribbon that I received as part of my MPP pack from the fab Bosses Craft-Dee BowZ. I used a sizzix die set to create the frame around the stampin up stamped sentiment.The bird punch also is from stampin up.The leaf punch is from Martha stewart and the bunch of berries are from Anna marie designs..I love the sparkly gems thanks Donna they are fabulous ...The gift bag was made using an A4 size piece of card to start with so it gave me a nice sized bag to hold a gift or candies.The bows on both projects have been made using my Trusty Craft-Dee BowZ   Bow making tool..which is my go to tool for perfect easy to make bows EVERY time.
