Birthday Lucy Gift Bag and Tag

I have another new digistamp by CC Designs to show today... this is Birthday Lucy and you can get yours at All That Scraps.  Instead of a card, I've made a gift bag and little tag set.
I've never made a gift bag before. Craft Your Passion has "In the bag or box" as it's challenge this time (you have to make your own, not decorate a shop-bought one!) and it got me thinking... so I found a template on the net, tweaked it up a bit (to make it a little wider and taller) and voila!   
I used a sheet from the DCWV Mariposa 12" pad for the bag, and cut the butterfly from the leftovers using Martha Stewart's Large Monarch punch, sparkling it up a bit with Diamond Stickles and adding some pearl antenna.
The image panel is cut using Nestabilities Classic Oval die, the mat is cut with Nestabilities Scalloped Oval die from American Crafts cardstock and embossed with Cuttlebugs Swiss Dots folder.  The strip around the bag is from the same cardstock, embossed with the same folder and the edge punched with EK Success Scroll and Hearts slimline punch.  Sugar Creek Hollow has Embossing as its theme, there's not a lot of embossing here... but there is some, so I'm in!
The image is coloured with Copics, as is the cute little tag, the stamp is another new digi from CC Designs, this is from the Birthday Logos sheet.  I cut the mat for it using fancy scissors (which have been sitting in one of my craft boxes for years, nice to crack them out!)   The eyelet is from Fiskars, I got an eyelet setting kit for Christmas and used this opportunity to test it out; one on the tag and four on the bag; with varying degrees of success I might add!     The lace is from my stash, as is the organza ribbon (which is actually recycled from gift wrapping - lucky for me my son Chris "does" great wrapping, and is a constant source of ribbon and paper for me, lol)  Cutie Pie Challenge is Ribbon and Lace, I've got both so I'm in!  Stampin' for the Weekend has Out With the Old (use some of your old stash) as its challenge, so I'm entering there too.
Crafty Cardmakers has No Flowers of Any Kind as its theme - no flowers here :-)  Stamptacular Sunday Challenge has Texture Please, I've got a few different textures so I'm entering there, both Bizzy Becs and Cupcake Craftroom have Anything Goes challenges so I'm in there too.  Crafty Emma's Store has "Vintage Dahling" as its theme, I'm not sure if this is vintage enough but it feels vintagey to me, so I'm entering there too.
That's it for today, do pop over to the All That Scraps Blog and check out some more eye candy using these lovely new digis... and I'll be back tomorrow with another project that uses a super cute image.  Until then, Happy Crafting, Donna
