Love in a Bag

I've got two more Valentine's to share with you today (still building up my stash for the Valentine Sale at my church).  One's a treat bag and one is a card.
I made my card using the sketch for a new challenge I just found -  Stamplorations -  they have bi-weekly sketch challenges and a monthly challenge.
I used two different tags and a love word die from PTI.  The white tag is embossed with the Hugs and Kisses Coverup from MFT.  Here is the challenge sketch.
My next project is a Valentine Treat bag
I used a pretty 4"x5" organza bag from Pouch Mart.  The doily was made using an Eyelet Circle Nestability.  I stamped and cut out the heart from My Heart by WMS.  The sentiment is from Sweethearts by WMS stamped on a stitched flag die from Lil' Inker Designs.

I'm entering my little treat bag in two challenges:

Waltzingmouse Fanatics - to use Fabric (I used an organza bag)

Curtain Call - Love Letter Inspiration photo (inspired by the doily and heart packaging)

Sorry for the tardy visit Julia - I did wonder if our challenge would see you feature one of your little bags (previous versions inspired me to stamp on bags!)
Love the bag and the card.
Thanks for your continued support.
