Lilac Bag

Something I've been wanting and meaning to have a try at for ages. So, when I saw a pack of 4 plain brown paper bags for 97p at our local 'value' shop I just had to get them.

I covered the bag front with LOTV Promises paper, trimmed with some cream lace, and added an image from the English Charm Art Pad. A few die-cut daisies (using Sue Wilson's Open Daisies set), a LOTV Circular Sentiment and a Cheery Lynn butterfly to finish off. Gems for the flower centres and Ribbon from stash.

Very easy to do and I'm not sure why I left it so long to try.

I'd like to enter the following challenge:
