Good bye to Summer

Hello fall  ........

Decided to make some little candy bags for Halloween and found this Making Cards magazine freebie by Nancy Watt stashed away safely - perfect for the job!
Used one of the A4 backing papers to make the bag, stuck the tag to a large gold tag I've had for ever and a day and added some brown ribbon then mounted it 3d to the front of the bag. I added the sentiment which was layered onto a snippet of gold card and used some string to make the handles.

Challenges entered:
The Craft Garden - photo inspired
Crazy 4 Challenges - colour challenge
Happileigh Scrappin - fallin leaves
Sweet Stamps - stitching (faux stitching on the backing paper)
Crafty Purple Frog - fall into fall
Craft us Crazy - goodbye summer
