Bitty Bag Cards

I admit, I am a use-bitty-bags-as-patterned-paper fiend. Case in point, these two cards.

The first is a navy horizontal strip middy bitty bag that I cut down on the top and right side to create a sleeve for a tabbed flat card, then heat embossed the front with gold powder. Sometimes I forget to use it, but the EK Success powder tool does help cut down on stray specks of embossing powder!

The second is a baby card where I used the gray honeycomb middy bitty bag as a base, adding a coral block on top. The focal point of the card includes an aqua scrolly square label and a fussy cut blue chick petite sticky.
