Stampin' Royalty Challenge #34 ~Pearls & Rhinestones

 The other night I was going over to a friend's for dinner and I wanted a gift bag to take a little hostess gift to her.  I was working on some new bag designs based on the style that I've been seeing all over the internet.  I wanted to use the upcoming Tasteful Trims Bigz Die in my bag for a finishing touch.  You can see just two of the wonderful 12" trims that this die has on my purse.  I used the scalloped edge for the bottom of the bag to finish it and then I used that sweet oval pattern for the top of the bag.  The other new product on the bag is the Decorative Label Punch, also being released on September 1st, TODAY!!!!!!!! .  I LOVE IT:)  If you missed my little video on how to mat it, you can watch it here To tie this in with the Stampin' Royalty Challenge this week, I used my Basic Pearls to finish it off.  I used five of the tiny ones along the bottom of the stamp and two more of the medium sized ones on either side of the center.  This is the gift bag that is part of my Artistic Etchings PDF file:)
