A Tag and a Bag

Hi Everyone! If you're looking for the Season's Givings blog hop card, please click HERE. I was overwhelmed at the sweet comments about the card. Thank you! And if you're a new follower, welcome. :)

After a two week break, it's time for another Play Date Cafe Challenge. Here are this week's colors:

I was pretty gaga over the colors...the orange is so cheerful! Here's the gift bag I created:

I die cut a PTI wine tag out of the Ruby Rock-It gingham paper and tucked the top part of the wine tag inside a small gift bag. I figured in a pinch, I could use the tag for a bottle of wine. ;)

The sentiment, house, door and window stamps and dies are from the Where the Heart Is stamp/die set. I used the "thanks" sentiment thinking I could put a small hostess gift inside (as in thank you for your hospitality).

Here's a close-up to see the house and the cute arrow paper clip better:

When I was done, I thought the bag needed one more orange element at the top. I don't have any orange tissue paper, so instead, I took an orange Copic marker and quickly drew stripes on a piece of white tissue paper. Problem solved, and it was cheaper than buying specialty tissue paper. :)

If you would like to play along with this week's PDCC color challenge, you can link up your project HERE. We love seeing your projects!
