Belated birthday Leanne

 Here is a gift bag I have created for my friend Leanne, who has been very patient. Her birthday was16th March but the present I had ordered for her through a craft shop ended up being on back order for weeks, then it turned out she already had the item I had ordered. So it was back to the drawing board and eventually on 27th April I was able to give her the present.
 I had seen an envelope type bag on someone's blog ( sorry not to be able to give credit, I must remember to write these things down as I can never find them again) using the edgelet die by Stampin Up! An idea sprang to mind and I created this to hold the two dies I had brought as a present.
 The flower dies and Zig Zag die are from MFT. Butterfly - Marianne. Foliage- Marianne and Memory Box. Flourish - Papertrey Ink.
 This is the inside showing the pocket for the dies

This is the other side with the greeting on.
Finally here is the card I created using the small Madison window, window box and foliage (cut from Breezy Wreath die) from Memory box/Poppy stamps.The brick wall is embossed from a plate by Cherry Lynn

Beautiful! I think the photos don't do your projects justice, Kerry - the bag and card are such wonderful gifts, and I'm glad I got to see them in real life. They look amazing.
