Charisma cardz #38–DT project

Good morning dear friends.  I hope you are having a great week so far, work is completely manic at the moment so the week is flying by for me, hope it’s the same for you!.  It’s Thursday so that means it’s time for a brand new challenge over at charisma cardz and it’s Team Gem’s turn to share their work.  This week Christel has given us a brilliant theme of “create a gift bag or box and matching card”.  I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed making my projects for this challenge (which makes a change!!).  Here is my card and bag:

I have used a super cute image from DigiStamp Boutique from the ‘cute halloween collection’ which is one of the “offers of the month” this month and therefore available at a fantastic price.  I also printed out extra pumpkins from the ‘halloween doodles set’ which is this month’s freebie, so grab it while you can.   I coloured the images with promarkers and the gorgeous papers are authentique from the ‘6x6 bundle collection: glowing’.

Our sponsors this week are Crafty Emma’s Store who is offering a £10.00 voucher (not including p&p) to spend in her online store and Meljen’s designs who are offering one lucky winner 4 digi images of their choice from their online store. 

The rest of the design team have made gorgeous samples to inspire you once again this week, so please pop over and check them out.  We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
