Today I'm participating in the April Waltzingmouse Blog Party - The theme this month is "New Beginnings"Gingham & Co. The sentiment is from Say It Loud. My sister-in-law gave me a bag of these pretty ribbon flowers so I don't know where they came from but I think you can get them at Joann's or Michaels. The bow is matte pink raffia from Pouch Mart.
I also decorated this sweet pink gingham bag, using the same sentiment, punched and die cut circles and raffia bow. I love how fluffy the raffia looks when you pull it to open it up - I do that after I tie the bow. The bag is 3"x4" and would be perfect to tuck in a little bag of mints, a small gift or as a favor at a baby shower!
I sponged the edge of the punched circle with Antique Linen Ranger Distress ink.
Doesn't the gingham stamping match the gingham bag perfectly!!
