Papertrey Ink: Tag & Bag Challenge

This is my third project for the 8th Anniversary Celebrations at Papertrey Ink. Each day PTI fans are given a chance to win fabulous prizes, by entering various challenges. You can see the third challenge outlined on Nichole Heady`s blog.
Day 3 Challenge: 
This challenge focuses on tags and packaging for gift giving.
I often like to sew or knit gifts for my wee grand nephews and nieces. 
I have 8 grand nieces in my family, so I'm always looking for ideas for little girls. With that in mind, I used  a pink and white colour scheme and Stitched with Love stamps and dies to create this tag to go along with a pink striped gift bag. 
A striped Hibiscus Burst Bag is accented with the handmade tag 
and a white grosgrain ribbon.

The main circle panel was stamped with Hibiscus Burst several times 
(using my new MISTI), but the ink seems to have bled 
into the sentiment "just for you". 
I'm wondering if I could use a white gel pen to highlight these words. 
I'll have to experiment!!

I added the top white panel to a circle notecard cut using 
Limitless Layers 2 1/2" circle die. 
Two holes were punched at the fold into order to thread 
a piece of crochet cotton through.

Stamps - Stitched With Love
Inks - Dark Chocolate, Hibiscus Burst, Lemon Tart, Simply Chartruese; Versafine Onyx Black
