You will find a list of other participating DT members towards the end of my post.

For my 3D project I took the Floral Statements stamp and used it to create a Thank You Gift Set. 
A card with a co-ordinating Thank You gift bag.
I quite often feel the need to say thank you

For my bag I used the Foil Frenzy patterned paper in Berry Burst and the Gift Bag Punch Board.
OMG this items is a god send and saves so much time and effort when searching for an appropriate bag for a small gift to co-ordinate with your cards!
The BB Foil Frenzy paper just really makes the whole set POP!

For my card I used Thick Whisper white for the base with a layer of Berry Burst card stock for the edge. I water coloured onto the Thick Whisper White and added the Berry Burst seam binding ribbon with 3 glitter enamel dots in co-ordinating shades of BB.

To make the bag topper I used one of my water coloured card fronts. I trimmed it right down to the side of lettering edges. I have never been one to subscribe to the less is more theory by nature, hence why I have problems with the CAS style lol. I added a layer of crumb cake card stock underneath cut into the banner shape.
 I popped a corrugated heart element on the bottom right corner and added 3 glitter enamel dots in co-ordinating shades of BB. 
To finish I added a length of mini sequin trim in black plus the BB seam binding ribbon, tied together with linen thread and then stapeled in place.. 
The Gold binder clip helps keep the bag closed and tidy, as well as keeping the bag topper in place....
