Anything Goes at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well.  It has been very windy here the last couple of days and quite cold with it.  Just hope the nicer weather turns up soon.  I had a successful shopping trip on Monday and managed to get my dress, handbag and fascinator for the wedding.  Just got my shoes and a jacket to get now.  Less than 3 months to go now and very excited.  

Anyway, today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this week is:
Anything Goes
A nice easy one for you all.

We have two sponsors for this week's challenge:
Lemon Shortbread - prize of 3 digi images to the winner
Deedees Digis - prize of a $15 gift certificate

Here is my inspiration project using a cute image from Lemon Shortbread.

I decorated a cute little gift bag for this challenge.  The image was coloured in promarkers and I then covered the image with a glitter sticky sheet from Little Claire.  The sheet is transparent so you can still see the image but you get a lot of sparkle.  I wanted to try and create a mystical feel.  The image was then mounted onto black card.  The sentiment is a die from All Occasion dies.  Some ribbon and a bow finished the gift bag.  The butterfly sparkles at the top is a strip that I got from a friend for my birthday.  You can either use it as a strip or cut off the individual butterflies.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges for full challenge details.  Don't forget to check out the inspiration from my talented teamies.
