The bag came from the Wrap It Up Cartridge. I used a 12x12 piece of Kraft cardstock and used the Fit To Page Feature. The #1 Dad also came from the Wrap It Up Cartridge.
The #1 was cut in plain white cardstock and then I inked it with my QQ Midnight Confessions Chalk Ink and the “goldish” color on the tie was my Y28 Copic Marker.

The quote on this card was from the same piece of 
Damsel In Distress 300 Patterned Paper from Quick Quotes.

I used my Cricut to cut out the “branch” and created the Digital Stamp of Jeremiah 17. I also used my Cuttlebug to create the embossed background paper.
