A Magical Friendship -- for Julia Spiri Stamps

It's Thursday, and time for a new challenge at the Julia Spiri Challenge Blog.  The themes are always Anything Goes -- with a twist, if you choose.  This time, the twist is -- Craft bags (make a bag).  The challenge will run for the next 2 weeks. 

I absolutely love Julia Spiri images.  There isn't a bad one in the bunch, but this one?!?  It has to be one of my favorites!!! (do I say that every time?) This is The Little Dragonfly...

I colored The Little Dragonfly with Copic markers.  It was so much fun to experiment with colors on those wings and the dress.  It was an Anything Goes coloring affair, let me tell you! 

The bag was cut out on my Silhouette Cameo, with a file found here in the Silhouette Design Store.  I cut the colored image out with a couple of circle dies.  The plain circle die is by Spellbinders.  The stitched circle die is from Craftin' Desert Divas.  The sentiment is digital, by Polkadoodles, printed onto a Polkadoodles paper.  The paper behind the Little Dragonfly image is digital -- Prima Indeed, purchased at Snap Click Supply.  The ribbons on the bag are from Really Reasonable Ribbon. 

I hope you can join in on our optional Craft bag challenge at Julia Spiri Challenge Blog.  We have great prizes, and I'd love to see what you make!  Check out our Stamps by Julia Spiri Facebook group, too, for news, inspiration, discount codes, and more!
