The Sugar Bowl, Friday Sketches & Just Magnolia

My first card is for The Sugar Bowl challenge with a great sketch by Marlene. They also wanted to see zig zags somewhere on your card. I used the ric rac for my zig zag. The papers are Papermania from last year and I added some Craftwork card candy. The text is printed out.

And my second project is a gift bag using the sketch over at Friday Sketches. I decided to enter into the Just Magnolia challenge which is masking. And when I made the image up, it was actually bigger than I would usually do for a card, so I decided to make a bag. I need several more too - so may be making some more. The papers are a download from Sweet shoppe Designs by Zoe Pearn - Winter Wishes. I printed out the text and added 3 brads at the top. I added the poinsettia because it looked a bit bare up there. I decided to go with a nice thick organza ribbon, but didn't think I had any. But I found this one from years back. I think I may just have to invest in some more. I kinda like this one. It made great handles too.
