Butterfly Birthday Gift Bag

Today's creation is a cute little birthday bag. It could just as easily be adapted to become a card. Every now and then I have to pull myself back from 'over doing' the embellies and just let things be. I love the look of embossing folders and don't get mine pulled out that often. They work great to fill in as patterned paper or as a background.

I LOVE this photo! So cool and I have a soft spot for butterflies. I was inspired by the 'pattern' on the woman's eyelid and the butterfly.

Here's a shot showing the side of the bag.

 I even embossed the back panel of the bag.
A few pearls and a bit of sparkle to jazz up the butterfly.
