Tickled Pink

I made this card in response to a challenge from Bitten By The Bug (the link is listed in my "Sites To See" on the right). I don't know if it was the drugs I was on for recovering from a tonsillectomy or what, but for some reason I thought I would try to make a card out of a tiny paper bag. This is what I came up with...

I used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder on the front flap. The "Tickled Pink" is a cut out I had from some paper stack and was the inspiration for the whole card. I coated it with Glossy Accents to stiffen it up and give it shine and dimension. I used Primas from the Essentials Baby Girl collection and some Lime Green and Fruit Punch Stickles. The scalloped cut is a Cricut cut.

Inside I have more Cricut cuts (scalloped square and the round pink tag). I love how the Swiss Dots embossing shows through on the left side. I used ribbons and more Glossy Accents and Stickles on the inside.

In the opening of the bag there is another scalloped square Cricut cut with a tab (another cut out from the paper stack).

Please let me know what you think! Thanks for looking!
