3 Girl Jam Challenge #11~ 3D Valentine's w/Ribbon

Good Morning Bloggers!!
It is a happy day over here....
I am hosting the new challenge over at the
this week's challenge is~ 
3D Valentine's w/Ribbon
we want to see all those projects that are Valentine's Day related w/ribbon of course~~
This week's challenge will be open for 2 weeks, Feb 1~14 so plenty of time to create and share!!
Excited about this also....our challenge is being sponsored by
So the winner will receive :
~25 Canvas Bags from State Line Bag Co
~1 bundle 3GJ ribbon
and a 
~Guest designer spot
Awesome prizes for sure!!!

So onto my project....
I LOVE my canvas bags.....
They make adorable packaging for your gifts 
and seeing that they are our awesome sponsor and 3GJ is now selling them in the shop (did you see that.....they are now for sale over at 3GJ HERE!!!)
I have probably my favorite canvas bag project ever to share....
I started with a plain 4x6 Cotton drawstring bag and pulled the drawstring out.
I knew that I was going to use 3 Girl Jam Crinkle ribbon in Holly Berry  and Tuxedo
as my bag closure
For my main image I wanted to try something different so I used some 
I ended up filling in the image with different designer papers from my stash and then printing the whole image out on the transfer paper.
Next comes the fun part....I ironed the image onto the canvas bag and tada....
I was really happy with the way it turned out but thought it could use something else so I un~stitched the whole bag and added my own stitching around the vinyl art. I also added a dimensional heart.. cut with My Creative Time's stitched heart die on some wool felt.
Then re~stitched the entire bag back together.
So there it is....
What do you think???
I sure hope you have enjoyed my project and will play along with us over at the 
Remember this challenge will run for 2 weeks so lots of time to get those Valentine Day projects in!!
