Anything goes at Tilda's Town

It's Saturday and time for another challenge at Tilda's Town challenge blog. Our theme this week is Anything goes!

The winner will get a great prize - a $10 Gift Certificate to Tilda's Town online store. The winner will be random!

For this challenge I made a gift bag. It's so hard to find brown kraft paper bags here in Slovenia or at least the ones that are the right size. I managed to find these bags in an online store but they were soooo expensive. :( I have to find some cheaper ones on ebay ...

I recently bought these two stamps from Magnolia's Winter Wonderland collection. Aren't they great? I think I'll use them through the whole year. I also used one of the new sentiment stamps from Lost & Found collection - Congratulations. I think this one will be used a lot. 

I hope you all had great Christmas holidays. Ours were great, even though it was raining the whole day. :) The important thing is that Santa came! lol

For this gift bag I used:
  • colors: TH distress ink markers and distress ink pads
  • ink: archival black
  • watercolor paper: Langton HP 300g
  • design papers: Maja design - Vintage frost & autumn basics
  • stamp: Cozy Tilda, Cozy Christmas Apple Basket (Winter wonderland coll., 2013), Congratulations - sentiment (Lost & Found collection, 2014)
  • die: DooHickey - swirl, heart swirl
  • white lace
  • pink gingram ribbon
  • brown bakers twine
  • flowers from I am roses, Kort og God, woc
  • stickles glue (stardust) 
  • glossy accent
  • cheesecloth
  • paper doily.

I’m entering this card into the following challenges:
  1.  Magnolia down under: Anything goes
  2. Simon says wednesday challenge: Bling it on
  3. You, me and Magnolia: Polka dots and dots
