Play Date Cafe Challenge 58

So I've misplaced my camera, but then again I misplace it about once a week.  Only this time I haven't been able to find it for days : (.  This week's color challenge at the  Play Date Cafe is use the colors red and white.  Perfect for a Christmas project right!  To tell you the truth I need a break from Christmas projects.  Just a small one.  I'll be back in that Christmas spirit and savoring every moment of this magical holiday soon.  For this project I drew inspiration from the amazing design team creations as well as the entries.  I just love Paul's entry over at the Artsiders.  Simple elegance.  So I made a gift bag and used A LOT of bling.    I had a rhinestone button that I had purchased a while back for a cape I made but never used so I thought why not use it now.  Then I made a coordinating card.  The rose on the card was made using the same ribbon as the bow on the bag.  I found this great tutorial on You Tube on how to make ribbon roses.  I was so easy.  I'll need to find the video again and link it up.  Quick post today nap time is almost over.  I hope everyone is having a good week.  Thanks for stopping by.

The Sleepy Stamper,

My apologies for the bad pictures.  I used my phone camera.
