Thanksgiving Goodie Bag and Card

Hi Everyone,
I have more Thanksgiving projects today. This one is a goodie bag and card. I will fill the bag with baked goods and deliver it to my neighbor, Del. I just used a purchased gift bag and decorated it.

Here is the card by itself.

The card sits in a vellum pocket on the front of the bag. I used a Stampsmith stamp for the main image. It is a Paris scenic image form the Paris Full Sheet which I stamped with a Kaleidacolor pad and covered with UTEE. I sliced the image into 3 equal pieces and layered. I used a Stampin' Up leaf stamp to make the background. The leaves were stamped in Always Artichoke, Really Rust, More Mustard, and Ruby Re (SU). Card stock is Always Artichoke, Really Rust, Barely Banana (SU) and glossy white. The DP on the bag is Green flocked from Me and My Big Ideas. Here are some close ups.

On the inside I added Thanksgiving Sentiments from Stampin' Up.

Challenges for this project:

Shabby Tea Room: Photo and Thankful

Paper take Weekly: Autumn Skies

Anything challenge: Emboss It-I heat embossed with UTEE
