JUGS Template Challenge #43

Good Morning Ladies!
It's Saturday again already and that means it's time for another challenge over at Just Us Girls and this week our hostess with the mostest is Dana!  This week it's a template challenge and the design team  got to pick a template from Kelleigh Ratzlaff over at the Digichick.  You can use any template you like but Kelleigh has a free template here that you can use or she has a great selection of templates for sale in her store!  You will definitely want to play along because the prize this week is...

  $10.00 gift certificate from the Digichick store.
For my project I used the Funky bag #2 which was perfect for the gift set I wanted to make.  I wanted to make my bag small enough to hold a gift card.  The template was so easy to put together it literally took me five minutes!  One of the fastest projects I've ever created!  LOL!!!  I created my ruffled edge by running score tape on the backside of the flap and then just bunched up my ribbon until it looked the way I wanted it to!  I liked it so much I decided to use it on my coordinating card!  My flower bunches I just cut from the paper and adhered them with pop-ups and added some branches i made with my MS punch!  I hope you are inspired by my project to give it a go yourself!  I can't wait to see what everyone creates!  Have a great day!!!

To play you need to upload your project for this week's challenge to your online blog or public photo gallery. Leave a link that goes directly to your project in the Inlinkz form at the bottom of the JUGS post. If you upload to online galleries, please also use the keyword or tag, JUGS43.
