Free Hugs Candy Pouch

Hello All;

I am super excited to share my first project as GDT for Loves Rubberstamps;

This week the challenge is an easy peasy lemon squeezy:

I have made a little purse using Gift Pouch from Shape EZ by TLC
(who is sponsoring this weeks challenge) Whink wink!
This was so much fun; and way easy!

 I have added a handle by using a ribbon and attaching die cuts with tiny heart brads.
 I have filled a plastic baggie with candies tucked inside; and used velcro to hold the flap down.
 Here is a closer view of Free Hugs from Staurated Canary available at Loves Rubberstamps HERE. I have colored her using Distress Markers also available at LRS HERE.

Colors Used- Skin: Tattered Rose, Blush: Worn Lipstick, Hair: Walnut Stain, Brushed Corduroy, Wild Honey, 
Reds: Fired Brick, Barn Doors, Jeans: Faded Denim, Broken China
