Birthday Bag

This is my first shaped card, a prototype! I created the template with a tent card as the starting point and an image of small rigid satin bags with dainty handles in my head. As you can see I need to work on the dainty handles. The bag had to be pink, just perfect for Jane. The gems sparkle & the edges appear less rough in person, but I think a slightly thinner card would work better next time.
