Silhouette Challenges will be giving away a

Just leave a comment on this post and each blog hop post for both days to be entered to win.

I am the third stop. 

Here is the entire list of stops for day 1 just in case you arrived here first and want to go to the start of the hop:

Kristin @ Paper Creations by Kristin
Barbara @ Craft Me This

By now you will have seen two fantastic projects so what can I add! I decided to make a card and matching gift bag. I used a set called Butterfly Bag & Card found HERE. This was a super easy to make and something that you could put together as a last minute set. For the base's I used some card stock which I purchased really cheaply from Lidl and wow is it fantastic card to use with the Silhouette, I wouldn't have believed it until I tried it. The pattern paper is from a really old 2008 DCWV Spring Stack!. I cut the butterflies and then added some patterns to them with various flourish stamps. 
I cut the bag and card as it was laid out on the cutting mat and the bag is a really nice size at about 8" tall, 4" wide and 2" deep, the card is a standard 5.5" x 4.25".

Here is the set

The card

The bag

Supplies:-
Card Stock - Lidl
Designer Paper - DCWV 'Spring Stack 2008'
Sentiments - Celebration Set by Paper Pretties  and Friend by Lili of the Valley 
Ink - Ranger Distress Ink 'Picked Raspberry' & 'Bundled Sage'
Flourishes - Various from Marie Currie & Papermania 'Tweet'
Die Cuts - My Scrap Chick Butterfly Bag & Card

It is time for you to be off to see Kristin who I am sure will have something super cute for you.

Don't forget there will be more hopping tomorrow and in order for you to qualify for the prize you must have left a comment of ALL blogs from both days.

Have a Creative Day and I will see you all soon.
Thanks for stopping by.
