Stamptacular Challenge 25

Hello everyone, for Stamptacular Challenge 25 we have a theme of "anything but a card" and I have made a cute bag topper for a bag of yummy sweets. Carmen from Card Art is sponsoring us this week with a fabulous prize, so hop on over, see what the rest of the DT have produced and join in with the fun!

The sentiment stamp is from the Magnolia Lazy Summer Days Collection that can be purchased directly from Magnolia. I have inked it up using my whispers pens and cut and layered it with nesties. The DP came in my Magnolia DT kit and I think it goes perfectly with this stamp. I finished off with a small jewel for a bit of sparkle!

Finally, a close up of the sentiment.

Card/Paper: Red and white card, DP from Magnolia
Stamps: Magnolia - Lazy Summer Days Collection
