Playing with my new {ippity}

I won a $20 {ippity} gift certificate last week as part of the {ippity} June release party, and I was psyched to be able to get an awesome new set called The Best with it. It arrived yesterday (thanks, Noelle!), and I couldn't wait to start playing with it!! I needed a birthday gift bag in a hurry, so this evening I used the very cool EVENT tag from my new set to dress up a patterned paper bag I've had in my stash since, oh, I don't know, 1986? 'Bout time I used that bugger, eh? This is what I came up with:
I thought I'd enter this in the {ippity} challenge to make anything but a card. It's also perfect for the new All Things Unity challenge to Get Manly.

Thanks for taking a look!

Card Recipe:
Stamps: The Best, Regal Greetings, Just Wanted to Say by {ippity}
Paper: PTI kraft CS, SU whisper white CS
Ink: Versafine onyx, Palette l'amore red
Accessories: scalloped decorative scissors, printed paper bag, silver brad, decorative paper clip, rustic string

1986? Excellent :) The only reason I don't have stash at least as old is because we moved cross-country in 2002 & hubs wouldn't let me take everything ;) You know, though, using up stash means there's room for new stuff!
Congrats on your new fun stuff - and I love the project! The way you tied the string is really cool.

So cool to being using up your old stash! I am happy to hear you won a GC, and that you used Noelle as your ippity chick! She is the best! :)

Congrats on another win of goodies! I'd LOVE to see all of your winnings piled up together; bet it's a large pile! Glad you got to use something that you've had in your stash for a long time. Feels good, doesn't it? And enjoy those new stamps - they are neat!

How very elegant! I love how you used that tag with the crown inside. Your sponging looks fabulous, Emily, and I'm very interested in how you attached those pieces of string to the brad!!
