Blue Floral Bag ...

Stay Cool and Use Blue...
This beautiful floral bag (just right to put your pretty cards in as a gift) is all about blue. Blue is the theme at Pile it On this week beginning on Sunday August 14. Just use any three shades of blues somewhere on your project - it doesn't have to be all blue. We need some "cool" colors after all this summer heat.

 Don't you just love the bag and the flower embellishment too. The flower was made dimensional by rolling the petals back over a small pencil. I also made a little set of matching cards using a pretty flower template.These were made from templates from the Pile it On sponsor this week which is Krisi's Kreations. She has really cool ideas!

 The Creative Details:
Templates for bag and flower: Krisi's Kreations
Sentiment: Great Impressions
Embellishments: Resin brad, metal brads, blue lace, pearls, diamond stickles
Tools: Border Punch (Martha Stewart Crafts)

The Challenges:
Catch the Bug/Bug a Boo - Anything goes
C.R.A.F.T challenge - a gift
Crafty Purple Frog - Anything but a card
