Pink and Brown for Theme Thursday Challenge

The challenge this week on the Theme Thursday site was for Pink and Brown so instead of making a card I decided to make a bag similar to the blue one that I made last week.

This cute little bag is embellished with a scalloped edged piece of card front and back and layered up with brown paper that I had in my stash. The little perfume bottle is from Savvy Stamps and is on special offer at the moment on the Craft Fairy site.
The brown dotty ribbon is here, and the pink dotty ribbon is here.
