Cuttlebug Embossed Vellum Easter Treat Bag

We're back from a week + of travelling to visit relatives. I don't know about you, but I was having major blog withdrawal symptoms. I created very little...not by choice, just due to limited supplies I was able to pack. I may be getting in on two challenges at the last minute with this treat bag. One being Cuttlebug Challenges 26: Cuttlebug and Vellum Make Great Easter Projects. The other being The Cuttlebug Spot Challenge #25: Easter Treat Containers. I used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, my SU! Top Note die, my new EK Success border punch (I purchased while travelling...YES, I packed my ACMoore and Michael's coupons!) All punches are SU! The cardstock is Augusta Green linen and Ponderosa Pine linen (both from XPEDX), pink Bazzill, and white cardstock. The brads and butterfly are from my mom's stash. The "&" is a rub-on and the names are stickers I purchased from Michael's.
I also used a Michael's coupon to buy another box of DCWV cards. I used my new Martha border punch and DCWV decorative paper from the Nana's Kids mat stack. I also packed my scrap ribbon bag from Leslie. See that itty bitty white ribbon? Thanks to Leslie, I made 3 cards like this one :)

Wow, both of those are just as cute as they can be! I am loving the EK Success border punch. I think it is the one my friend bought the last one of when I was with her so I wasn't able to get it :( I love what you did with it---alternating three layers, just perfect---great effect!..........d
