Penguin baggie

We're halfway through this fortnight's Recycle challenge at the ABC Christmas Challenge.  I've made another little baggie from yet another 'tasteful' old skirt (it's at least 20 years old this time!).

I've also recycled a couple of other items too, being the pink backing card under the image (an old subject divider) and also the ribbon (from a box of chocolates given to me by my Mother-in-law during her recent visit.

Here's the baggie ...

Here's a matching card (also made using some of the pink card from the file divider).  Isn't this image a darling, I just love it.

And here's the skirt (obviously before I cut it up!!!) 

Gorgeous huh?

Hmm, not sure about the originaly skirt Annette (think I've got something similar in teal stashed in the back of the wardrobe!) but your bag is totally gorgeous! Love the sparkly snowflakes and, of course, the beautiful image.
