The Stars are Brightly Shining

I've been creating so many Halloween crafts and cards -  I just had to move onto Christmas with today's creation.
It's a little purple jute gift bag (3  x 5")  from Pouch Mart (it's a lovely deep purple color - but looks kind of navy here for some reason?), decorated simply with die cut stars of brushed silver card stock.  I added a tag with a silver embossed sentiment from Verve hung with a key chain looped through the bag ties.  I die cut the tag with a Half and Half die from PTI - I trimmed off the edges a bit to fit the sentiment.
I'm entering this in the Cas-ual Fridays challenge - tags and bags
Of course- I still have some fun Halloween stuff to post -  that will come in a day or so - but today was a nice break from orange and black!!

Stamps:  Verve - Peace on Earth
Paper:  White - PTI, Brushed Silver - SU
Ink:  Versamark, Archival Jet Black
Accessories:  purple muslin bag - Pouch Mart.com, Star Nestabilities, Silver sticky half pearls - Michaels, foam dots, Glue n Seal - Ranger, key chain - Tandy Leather, Modern Label Punch - SU, Half and Half Die Collection - PTI, silver embossing powder, heat gun.
