Clearly yours... Valentine's treat bag

TGIF! Happy Friday, friends. I hope you've had a great week.
This week's challenge at Frosted Designs is all about being clear. The talented DT was tasked to use transparencies or acrylic elements in their proejcts this week. For me, this challenge came at a perfect time. I've been using the last little bits of my January Lucky Girl Crafts kit, which was packed with the lovely Pink Paislee Sweetness line, including one of their awesome acrylic cards. Serendipitous, right?!
Take a peek at my altered Valentine's treat bag:
I disassembled the mini gift bagbag to cut a window out of the front, then hot glued one of the Sweetness Clear Cards along the inside of the bag. Once that was done, I reassembled the bag and decorated the front with pleated grosgrain ribbon & fussy cut flowers from the Love Blooms paper. I added a little Shimmerz to the roses, a few layered buttons and a little Valentine's banner to tie it all together. The inside gift is wrapped in shimmery tissue paper and tulle.
So, what do you think? One of the participants at this morning's Two Rivers MOPS meetings is the lucky winner of this goody bag, filled, of course, with lots of scrappy goodies.
