Circle Card & Matching Treat Bag - Forever Young Cartridge

I always love a challenge and this one was a big challenge for me - circle card!  However, I persevered and came up with something.  To see the sketch that Lee Anne came up with and the other submissions click HERE.   If you like challenges (don't we all) and are looking for antoher one, there is a new challenge posted every Thursday over on the Papertrey Paper Dolls blog.  I made this card for a great friend.  One of her twin boys is in the same 1st grade class as my daughter, and she has been taking and picking my daughter for school since she goes that way anyway and so I won't have to get the three younger ones out.  I also made a coordinating treat bag from Forever Young Cartridge to give her with the card. 

Here is the card I came up with for the challenge.  I hope you like it!

Here's the set including a matching envelope! 
I filled the treat bag with miniature candy bars!!  Who doesn't love chocolate!!

Purse: Cut out of Really Rust, stamped with Really Rust, Why oh, why did SU get rid of that one?
Card Base: White  4 1/4" Circle (folded)  I used my Accucut manual die cutter and circle die putting fold just inside the edge creating a circle card! 
Card front:  SU DP Really Rust 4" Scallop Circle layered on chipboard and edges sponged with Really Rust Ink
Other Cardstock / Paper:  Flower image cut from PTI Cardstock Ripe Avocado, Summer Sunrise, & Lemon Tart
Ink: SU Really Rust
Stamps: PTI (Papertrey Ink) All About You & Mixed Messages
Accessories: Cricut and Forever Young Cartridge, SU Jewelry Tag Punch which goes PERFECTLY with PTI Mixed Messages, Hemp, Random Button probably bought from Oriental Trading Company, & Ribbon I found at The Dollar Tree!!!
