Pimped my Macy's Bag

This weekend Mr. Sunny and I attended a wedding.  I was quite excited to go since it was the first wedding we have attend in our new (it's been five years now) hometown. And the reception was in the really cool downtown area but ultra swanky building. But more importantly I would need to make a wedding card.  As you can tell I haven't needed a wedding card for quite some time from my previous statement. But when I saw this card that Betsy Veldman made for the December PTI release I had to have this set and recreate that card.  And the best part was I would be able to use the card!!!

So earlier in the week I stopped in at Macy's to pick up a gift from their registry and at the end of the purchase the lady offered me a gift bag for FREE.  I, of course, jumped on the offer but was a bit let down when she handed a regular shopping bag to me but instead of it being red it was silver (since it was a wedding gift bag). Oh well, I decided to work with it since it was FREE. So this is when the thought crossed my mind that I would need more than a card to "pimp out this shopping bag". I decided I would make a tag too. But instead of working on it during the week I waited to make the card/tag the same day as the wedding and I still needed to run out and buy new panty hose, take a shower and figure out how to look swanky with my "shopping bag" which require a quick run to Hobby Lobby for some flowers (since that is not something I have being a mom of boys but now I have a bunch due to the fact that the only package I could find in the size/color I needed had 80 flowers) and pearls. So time was short but this is what the gift looked like as we were heading out to the wedding.

Here are some close ups of the card and tag (front and back)
