Welcome Baby

I have been pretty much making cards lately, so making a gift bag was a fun little departure for me. :) The gift bag was made for the Flaunt it Fridays challenge, which was to use the turtle from Create a Critter, and to make something other than a card. That part was a challenge, not a requirement. I made it a baby gift bag for the challenge at Sentimental Sundays, which is "baby."
I used a bag that I already had on hand and just dressed it up. The turtle is from Create a Critter and cut at 2 1/4." For the grass I
just cut some Core'dinations cardstock to fit the size of the bag and tore the top. I cut the presents from Celebrations, using some cardstock from the Citrus stack by DCWV. I used some lime green Stickles for the bow/ribbon on the presents. I used pop-dots of different widths for the bottom two presents and
the top one is adhered to the bag directly. The "welcome" part of the sentiment is from ZooBalloo, cut at 1 1/2," and the "baby" is from Makin' the Grade, cut at 1," and adhered vertically. I finished it off by adding google eyes to the little turtle. Enjoy!
