Hi everyone! Happy Friday again! Hope you’ve had a great week! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Craft for the Craic and I’m happy to share my guest designer project for Easter – Anything But A Card Challenge! OMG, I had a b.l.a.s.t. creating this shabby chic Easter gift bag! It’s all ready for some yummy candy Easter eggs and chocolates! ;)

I die cut the two pieces for the gift bag and put it together, then just started layering vintage images and elements.

I inked all the elements with Antique Linen distress ink, and then splattered white paint and purple shimmer ink.
