Enchanted, Fresh and Happy

Hi All! Has everyone recovered from the weekend? I hope so... :) I have a card and a 3D project to share with you today...I feel like I am repeating myself with these posts, considering these samples are some more of what I submitted for Leadership last month. But I want to share them with you, so I guess you'll have to hang in there just a little longer... I promise I won't disappoint. :) OK, onto the card -

I used the SAB set called Fresh Vintage for the background, and Pursuit of Happiness for the sentiment, which can be found in the main catalog. I wanted to create a delicate background, so I stamped the flourish in Versamark, and clear embossed it. I repeated the same technique on the sentiment panel. I thought about adding a few more embellishments, but decided not to, considering the beautiful DSP. It really speaks for itself, and I didn't want to cover it up. :) For the 3D-

I used the same papers and kept the stamping simple as to not to take away from the beautiful Everyday Enchantment DSP again. I really love making this little bag too. I made it using the Fancy Favor Box die for the Big Shot. I made the bottom of the bag as you  normally would, following the template from the die. For the top of the bag, I simply cut off the tabs that would be the bottom of the box, pinched it closed, punched a few holes at the top, and tied it closed with some Pool Party ribbon. I am sure if you give it a try, you will be just as in love with this little bag as I am. OK, I am off... Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! Details below -

Love the card and the bag. I agree, the dsp is so pretty that you hate to do anything to cover it did just the right amount of stamping to enhance the beauty of the paper!
