Crafty Secrets Challenge - Brown Baggin' It

This week over on the SCS Crafty Secrets Forum Challenge, Pammyjo has challenged us to use ... of all things ... a brown bag on our creation!  Hmmmmm now that got my wheels turning!!

First I thought okay ... I'll get one of DH's lunch bags, crumple it up as background paper then I spotted a stack of various bags I had saved from crafting purchases.  Some stores really use creative bags ... others "not so much!"   My "brown bag" is actually a brown/red gingham paper bag and see the "pinked edging"??  that was the top of the bag.  I merely cut it to size ... smushed a little vintage photo ink on it and I had my background all ready to go!!

With it being "gardening"  time of the year, I chose this sweet image from the new "Seasonal booklet".   I've made a fence with the MS fence border punch ... a little more vintage ink smooshing ... a flower/a vine and this creation was complete!!

Thanks again for stopping by!  I truly appreciate your visits!!
