Papertake Weekly Challenge

This weeks challenge over at Papertake Weekly is "Stitching". I have made this bag which is prcut chipboard for a swap I host called Me to You. Its for my friend Shaz who loves elephants!. The backing paper is from the Doodlecharms Cricut Pad. I stamped my new elephant from Spiral Whisper onto Joanna Sheen gingham paper. Cut "Shaz" out on my Cricut. The butterfly is from Hels Stictchels and have cololured with copics. I've gone around the edge with a chalk ink pad and finished it with stitching around the frame. Hope Shaz likes her pressie!!!
