Birthday Cake Gusset Bag

Hello ScrappinCookie Fans,
Today I have fun and quick treat bag to share with you. I made this specifically for the Jaded Blossom July Customer Appreciation Challenge - check out the Jaded Blossom Blog for more details -  and then added a few more as I went along.
For the last two weeks Jaded Blossom has had their Customer Appreciation Sale and not having made a BIG crafty purchase in two years, I went for it. For this project I used the Jaded Blossom Supersized Birthday Greetings. I stamped the sentiment onto a hand-cut flag strip and added it to my topper made with the SVG Cutting Files Ornate Card Base - 3.
I filled a Gusset Bag - also from Jaded Blossom - with some Hershey Kisses. I used the Jaded Blossom Birthday Candies 2 for the bottom of the chocolates. Images were colored in using my PrismaColor Pencils - I can't color with Copics or any other kind of marker.
To finish off the treat bag, I used the Birthday Cake from the SVG Cutting Files Kawaii Birthday Lollipop Covers - the image was downsized a bit. I stamped it with the PK - 1371 Kawaii Faces from Peachy Keen. I felt like it need a bit of sparkle, so I reached for my Wink of Stella Glitter Pen and started added shimmer to the flame and frosting edges, without noticing that I grabbed the wrong pen! I used the Wink of Stella White instead of Wink of Stella Clear and it left this white border line to where I added it. It covered up all the edge inking and details I had added. So Mad.
Before I started working on this project, I learned about ColourQ Challenge #350 and when I saw the color palette I immediately thought about the Echo Park Paper Birthday Wishes Girl Collection. Perfect for my Birthday Cake Gusset Bag. Although I didn't use SU! Colors, I tried to stay very close.
I hope you have enjoyed this project. I would love to hear your thoughts! Thank You for stopping by!
I will be entering this project in the following Challenges:
* Jaded Blossom "July Customer Appreciation Challenge" - Ends 7-17-16
* ColourQ Challenge #350 - Ends 7-18-16
