A pretty Penny Black box bag

This is the handbag box I made as my DT piece for Penny Black at Allsorts   ( http://pennyblackatallsortsdt.blogspot.com/ ) challenge this month. The theme is Free and Easy/anything goes.
I made this cute little summery themed  hat box bag to give to my granddaughter.
I placed a strip of ribbon across the box and added lace over the top. I made the handle with the same ribbon and lace and added a couple of brads on the ends. I also added the same ribbon and lace all  around the outside edge of the box. I used one of my pretty Penny Black stamps and coloured it with Aqumarkers and fixed it to the box.  I pleated a wide ribbon and added it to the right side of the box. I added a small bow and jewel to the top of the ribbon and finished it off with a sentiment.
If you pop over to the Penny Black at Allsorts blog you will find lots of inspiration from the team and all the details of the fabulous stash you can win this month.
Below is a list of the challenges I have entered.
