Lawn Fawn Goodie Bag die
48 color set ZIG Clean Color Real Brush markers -- Yellow, Bright Yellow,
Scarlet Red
1/4" and 1/2" score tape
Scrapbook Adhesives 1/2" 3D foam squares

There is a great video on the Lawn Fawn site with instructions for putting
the goodie bag together.  I stamped the heart cactus on the green cardstock
and on the Neenah card stock.  I colored the flower with the ZIG brush
makers -- I hadn't ever used these pens before -- they are fabulous!  They
blend beautifully and easily.  I cut out the cactus (removing some of the
green flower top) and the colored flower (attaching it to the green cactus).
I popped the completed image on the goodie bag using 4 foam squares.  The
goodie bag is the perfect size for many snack size candies, etc.  Endless

I stamped the larger butterfly in the center of the card, then stamped the
solid mini butterflies around it, going from bottom corner to top corner
with grey inkpad. The main butterfly was colored with my alcohol ink
markers, and I added dots for the flight paths with the grey alcohol ink
marker.  The sentiment was inked up with a black and red mini inkpad and
stamped at the bottom. The card front is layered on a piece of grey
patterned paper.
