CAS-Friday Challenge #28 with Front & Centre

Hi everyone! I've been a bit quiet the last few days so time for some update! I've been out catching up with my friends. Yesterday I had one over at my place and introduced stamping to her ;) We had fun, but I managed to take a good chunk/fillet of my left index finger with my craft knife :'( It's still oozing blood after 15hrs of pressure bandaids (I wasn't going to apply manual pressure for 15hrs lol). It's slowed down (bleeding wise), but I'll have another check later. But it really sucks.

Anyway, I thought I'd make a bag using my Front & Centre die at last. I've only made a card out of it and it was about time I used it for what it was originally intended for! I gave it to my friend to take her Christmas chocolate and the card she made inside.
 
Btw, I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone by adding in a tag to play along with this week's CAS-Friday Challenge!
 
 
I was stuck for a while as I don't deal with big spaces so well. I tend to work in smaller areas (i.e. cards) - hence I never started scrapbooking... yet. I will soon ;)
   
I stamped over the Berry Sorbet base with Sheet Music background in Versamark. Added some snowflakes and Tremendous treats.
  
 
I don't have any tag dies, so I just had to make with whatever I had. I used the Edgers #3 die to round the end of the tag. Here's a close up view. I heat embosssed the sentiment just to show my friend what it is lol
 

It's a little hard trying to type without your index finger so I'll stop it here. but thank you for coming again! :)

Love today's project. Sorry about your finger. I seem to have perpetual papercuts these days, but nothing that bloody.
