Spots and Stripes, Card and a Gift Bag!

Here is a card and bag combination! It is my first gift bag.....I have had the base kraft bag for a while now, but just not had an idea for what to put on the gift bag......until I saw this great sketch on Cardabilities and the challenge of spots and stripes on the La-La Land Crafts blog.
So here is the sketch from Cardabilities:

And here is what I have done.......
the gift bag:

the card:

The Kraft bag is from kraft selection.
The Kraft card and envelope are from envelope solutions.
The striped paper and paper with circles are both from DCWV.
The white ribbon with pink spots is from Craft Essentials.
Digital stamps of Heart Balloon Marci and Heart Balloon Luka (both from La-La Land Crafts) are printed on x-press it paper, then hand coloured with water colour pencils. They are then cut out and attached with pop dots.
The card has "Happy Birthday" stamped in Ultramarine ink (Vivid!).
The gift bag also has some baker's twine (from Koko Vanilla Designs) tied in a bow around one of the handles.

These two are for sale on Etsy in my shop: JemLou Productions. Here is the link to the card and here is the link to the gift bag.

They will also be posted to the La-La Land Crafts Customer Gallery.

Thanks for looking! :)
