Another gift bag

Well the sun did come out yesterday though there was a rather cool wind. That didn't stop some people from thinking it was the middle of Summer, with their shorts and sandals. This morning the sun is out and I want to get out and get some gardening done but before I do will share this gift bag with you. The bag is from Hobbycraft, I have lots of different bags I need to decorate for upcoming craft fairs. I used one of my new stamps from the NEC. This cutie is from Stamposaurus, coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, I've used a couple of odd bits of paper which I have faux stitched using my TH ruler and fineliner.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid with MS rose petal punched leaves. The little kraft butterflies were cut wit a new Memory Box die which cuts lots of tiny different shaped butterflies. Really pleased with that as once through the Bigshot gives me lots of butterflies for future cards.
Challenges:
Willow Sketchie Great sketch
CES Photo inspiration (I chose pink, green and butterflies)
2 Sisters Spring is in the air

I will also be entering Lisa's (Wishcraft) challenge for fun of waste not Wednesday as I have used some odd papers on my bag.
