Hello everyone,

Today sees the start of a new Challenge at Noor Design Uk.   The theme is 'Sparkle'.  Well what a lovely theme this is.  Full details can be found on the Challenge Blog here

I opted to alter a Gift bag again.  And I loved every minute of doing this, especially using such beautiful materials.

I started off by reaching for the gorgeous PION The Night before Christmas - Just a Peek papers, the Dutch Dobadoo STAR template, Dutch Doobadoo Structure paste a gold Stickles glitter and a  pot of glitter.  That was my starting point.

These are the dies I used:

JOY Stars Edge Die
Circle Die No 2

The Scrapiniec Holly Jolly Wreath was in the YULETIDE Crafteezee Collection but is now available here.  You can just see it peeping through  encircling the images on the papers.  Tiny pearls have been added to give the effect of berries.

I added Lace Gwendoline to the Pleated Ruffle Tulle Trim and again at the top left.

The flowers used are:

Large poppies
English roses
Pomegranite Apples

And the bows are made using  Antique Brown Vintage Seam Binding (love this colour!)

It would be lovely if you could pop over and see the so very talented Design Team's inspiration which can be found here and even better if you would like to enter the Challenge.

As always, thanks for looking
