Joy of the Holidays! Stamp Simply Black Friday!

It's Friday! Actually it's Black Friday here in the US! The day after Thanksgiving is when the Christmas shopping season begins and retailers hope to get their books from the red into the black! So, for Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Challenge today, we will use Black in our creations. Use it as one of your feature colors, accents, black ribbon, whatever works for you. Just have FUN! For my Black Friday creation I chose to gussie up this gift bag! It is a beautiful mirrored silver paper bag. I tried several times to take a picture that did it justice but as you can see I did not succeed! The black images on the bag are actually flocked, just scrumptious. I replaced the bag handles with black velvet ribbon! Embellished the stamped bag tag with a piece of Webster's Vintage Inspired netting, and a Webster's Pages Sparklers button! The stamped sentiment is found in my Clearly Wordsworth Set, Classic Christmas by Rubber Soul! I also edged my Spellbinder die cut with my Silver Leafing pen. Now I have a gift bag all set to go! Velvet ribbon, netting, sparkler button, stamp set, leafing pen and Spellbinder die are all found in The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store!
Thanks so much for stopping by! We hope you can play along this week. All are welcome and invited to play! The Splitcoaststampers Keyword is ssnotime167 for those who upload at SCS. There is no time limit. You can play this challenge anytime at all. The point is to keep it simple, quick and have fun! Be sure to link to Sharon's Mr. Linky too. Please link the direct post, not your blog, for ease in finding the proper creation!
