Sweet Friend Gift Bag

Hello everyone! I have a gift bag to show you all today that I made for my SIL. She is not only my SIL, but my very best friend!
I made a Box In A Bag...I know, it sounds funny but thats really what it's called. I found a tutorial HERE if you would like to make one yourself. I absolutely LOVE how this bag turned out! And I am VERY disappointed that my pictures do not show it's true colors! No matter what I did, it just wouldn't play nice when I was photographing it. LOL! It is alot pinker in person.
After I made the bag I added a punched border strip to the bottom and added brown crinkle ribbon over the top. The flourish was cut from Sweethearts. I didn't use the whole cut, just the flourish part. I used a Viva Decor pearl pen and added all the dots to the flourish. I also added pearl brads around it instead of the hearts. The sentiment tag was made using Fiskars punches and I also used the Viva pearl pen for the dots and on the hearts. The sentiment was stamped from Whimsical Designs Everyday Sentiments. To finish I added the handles which are wire edged ribbon and added bigger pearl brads.
I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
1. My Craft Spot's Monday challenge: Girly Girl Projects
2. RRRR- Pink and Brown with ribbon
