A special Thursday Digi Shack challenge

Well hello and happy Thursday to you! I am so glad you returned and that my crazy post re: blog candy yesterday didn't scare you away. lol! You know it was bad when I got a call from a friend (also a financial advisor) who told me she couldn't figure out what my blog candy numbers meant. HA! I re-worded it, hopefully it will all make sense. ;)

So today is a special TDS challenge because the winner will receive an incredible prize. (And I do mean incredible!) It's one that has never been offered before so be sure to come and join us - you won't be disappointed!
Our challenge is to be Etsy inspired using any of these bags for inspiration HERE that was made by The Digi Shack's owner, Toni Waters. Oooh, such talent!

You can see the bag HERE that inspired me, it is listed as Amy Butler's Lotus Flower.
And this is my piece:

First off, I loved the colors of this bag. The pink and brown hues are so different, but they blend so well together! Instead of a lotus I used the daisy from TDS' shop.
The actual white bag can be found at the Dollar Tree in the wedding aisle. There are 8 favor boxes in a single pack, and are usually $4+ at other stores. I ran that through my CB with the leafy branch folder, and then colored it in with SU's True Thyme ink pad and a blender pen. I copied the dots at the bottom of the bag with ribbon.
Now show us your awesome inspired piece! Link it up in TDS's blog HERE so we can see your wonderful creation. Have an awesome Thursday everyone!
*Love and Aloha*
