Beautiful you gift bag and cards

It is Tracey here with my inspiration project  for this month for CraftDee BowZ.  This project was a challenge for me as i am not a huge fan of red and i struggle with clean and simple designs as usually i love to embellish my projects with a ton of flowers ,gems, ribbons etc.
The cards are 6x6 inch so a i had to make a really large tote bag for them to fit into. This makes a fabulous gift for someone who likes to send handmade cards .
I have used the Stampin up stamp set called Beautiful You for the cards and the sentiments also come in the set  .. I colored the images with promarkers and added a simple piece of spotted designer paper as a border down one side.

The flowers on the bag are Stampin up flower shop stamps and i used the coordinating punch to cut them out .
The cute little red bows and the pretty single looped  ombre bow have been created using my Craft-Dee Bowz bow maker tool  ...
