Gecko Galz - February Customer Challenge

Hello, my friends!

Welcome back to a brand new Customer Challenge at Gecko Galz.
With it being February, the challenge is very appropriate:

Vintage Valentines!

I remember (way back) when we used to do the Valentine exchanges in school.
My favorite Valentines came in sweet little glassine envelopes.
That is what inspired my Valentine tag in a glassine bag.
I've been collecting a little stash of these bags.
I receive one in every online order from my favorite shop.
It also provided some more area to decorate.

I added a red heart doily to the front of the bag.
The other items are from the Postal Digital Collage Set.
I lightly distressed the edges and then inked them too.

Here is the Valentine tag beside the glassine bag.

The papers are all from the Love Potion #9 Digital Craft Kit.
From one paper I punched the heart seal, and cut the pretty doily.
The sweet image on top of the doily came from the Lovely Little Valentines Digital Collage Sheet.

Finally, I added some pink rhinestones and a ribbon bow.
I placed the ribbon so it will show when it's in the bag.

Other Materials Used:
Punch: Martha Stewart - Heart Seal;
Die: Cheery Lynn Designs - Spring Flower Burst Doily;
My Stash: Ribbon, Rhinestones, Glassine Bag.
